Falling Safely: Bike Riding Basics

Learning How to Fall Safely with Karen Porter

At the Galvin Therapy Center, we implement many therapy methods to help children become more independent. Our balance and coordination exercises help children learn how to ride a bike and overcome related anxieties.

In this video, Karen Porter walks a child through the art of falling safely. Karen instructs the child to maintain a firm grip on the handle bars while she gently pushes him forward. When the bike comes to a stop, he’s instructed to place his feet on the ground to avoid falling over.
