Mind you this is what I remember from nearly 20 years ago before my bike was stolen as a teen. I had a giant Huffy tricycle with a basket between the rear tires, probably made no later than the early 80s as it was in quite a state before it was restored in the early 90s. It did not fit on a regular bike rack and my dad lugged it around on a trailer (his own multi-purpose one). I have no idea if the bike would have fit on some other adapter or if one exists now that didn't before. Also, there are many different styles of tricycles now than I would have had access to back then.
Do you have a quality bike shop near you? They might be able to help. If not I would use the yellow pages online and just call up someone that is listed (even if they are not local). Someone with more knowledge of bikes than I have has to be able to help.
I actually saw a very cool recumbent trike on The Price is Right awhile ago and thought about seeing if I could find out more information about it. In this day and age you can find things in the most unexpected places.
Also, and this is just a random thought but a Children's Miracle Network affiliated hospital near me has an annual Bike Day for presenting specialized bikes to children who wouldn't be able to ride a normal bicycle and if all else fails you could see if you have a similar bike program in your area and call them with questions. I would hope they might know.
