She says he's no longer use a buggy when the family goes for walks.
A Westmeath mother is asking her local community to help raise funds for a special bike for her child, who has autism.
Janka Topiarzova Kovacikova has set up a GoFundMe page, as her eight year old son will no longer use a buggy when the family goes for walks.
She says they have looked at cheaper alternatives but they don't suit Lucas as he has poor concentration.
Over €1,000 has been raised in the last 24 hours.
