Being on the Autism Spectrum can bring challenges that make it harder to enjoy experiences that most kids enjoy in their daily lives.
The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin provides a supported environment through various events and activities all structured with the goal of providing our children a chance to comfortably learn how to interact with their peers and enjoy these activities.
Everything from learning to ride a bike to water comfort and safety is covered in our Keeping Kids Moving events so that they can learn to enjoy these experiences.

iCan Bike Camp
This program teaches individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become a lifelong independent rider! Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major accomplishment for attendees and builds confidence and an improved self-image. Nothing is more inspiring than seeing a group of bike camp participants ride a conventional bike completely independently. By the end of the five day camp over 80 percent of riders learn to ride their bikes completely independently.
