- Pediatric Balance Scale (PBS) Mean Group Score [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 5 ]The Pediatric Balance Scale (PBS) is a valid, 14-item assessment, developed based on the Berg Balance Scale, to assess balance in children. The PBS is a criterion-based measure, with each item scored on a 0-4 scale. The minimum score possible on the PBS is 0 points. The highest total score possible on the PBS is 56 points. Higher scores indicates better balance performance.The score reported is the mean PBS score of the group on day 5, the last day of the intervention.
- Distance Biked [ Time Frame: Day 1 and day 5 ]How far, up to 100', that the child can independently ride their Strider bike
- Change in Participation Level Based on the Participation and Environment Measure - Children and Youth (PEM-CY) [ Time Frame: 3 months, 6 months ]The PEM-CY is participation level outcome measure used to assess a child's engagement in activities in the home, school, and community environments. The PEM-CY is a valid and reliable measure and is completed by parent/caregiver report, making it appropriate to use with children with DS. The PEM-CY asks questions related to 25 types of activiites that take place in the home, school, and community environments. Parents report "how often" their child has participated in each activity over the last 4 months (daily; few times a week; once a week; few times a month; once a month; few times in the last four months; once in the last four months; never); "how involved" their child is when participating in 1 or 2 activities that she or he does most often (5-very involved, 4, 3-somewhat involved, 2, 1-minimally involved); whether or not they want their child's participation to change and how they want it to change. The PEM-CY does not have scale scores or a total score.
- Change in Physical Activity Based on the Patient Reported Outcome Measure Information System (PROMIS) Physical Activity Measure - Proxy Report [ Time Frame: 3 months, 6 months ]PROMIS Physical Activity outcome measures assesses various aspects related to a child's participation in physical activity.The PROMIS measure has 10 items that parents rate on a 5-point likert scale. A 1 indicates that the child participated in the activity "no days", 2 indicates that the child participated in the activity 1 day, 3 indicates that the child participated in the activity 2-3 days, 4 indicates that the child participated in the activity 4-5 days, and 5 indicates that the child participated in the activity 6-7 days. The PROMIS does not contain a total score.
