Default Need advice for a child with a disability

Hello to all. I am absolutely new to all of this and was hoping someone might be able to help out.

My daughter has a muscle weakness condition which means she can walk and move about but anything that requires muscle strength is toug (eg climbing stairs, riding a bike). So to date she rides with me on a tandem bike.

We are starting to look at motorised bikes and I am excited abut the idea but don't know where to begin.

She's 6 years old, and we assume that we will have to add stabilisers to the bike....not sure but assumed. I am also wondering if we are going to have to get clever on the hand-brakes.

Can someone point me at a good place to start?

Thanks much,
