The reward in fixing things

“Adam (name changed) is 9 and has autism. When he first came to the Adventure Playground he was very shy and didn’t get involved with the activities. His mum told us his bike was broken so he never rode it. When he came back the following week we were able to give him a newer, safer tire. Then, over the following weeks our volunteers worked with Adam to fix his bike. He loved using the tools and was delighted when he fixed something. Before long he had a safe, working bike. Adam was able to attend a mountain biking trip during half term – and came along and without his mum, which was a big step for him. He had a great time – enthusiastically giving everything a try. He told our youth worker: “I was so happy, I was almost crying”, as they went fast along the flat on the way back at the end of the day.”
