The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin’s 2021 annual Autism Gala is different because of COVID-19 this year. On Saturday, April 17, 2021, we will be throwing an UnGala! This includes a view-at-home virtual event with highlights of what we have been doing to serve the needs of the community during this difficult time and a watch party for the feature film: The Reason I Jump. The film explores the lives of nonspeaking autistic people around the World. The night also includes an online auction.
The A-Team Fun Walk will be held on Sept. 18 at Greenfield Park. We are planning that this will be an in-person event and will continue to be one of the largest autism gatherings in the state. This event replaced our Dylan’s Run event two years ago and still includes a day of family fun and a one-mile walk/run. … This will be our 21st annual event!
Our new 2021 A-Mazing Challenge scavenger hunt program will be held two quarters this year. The June-August event will focus on staying active and the October-December focus is on making connections. This great program includes activities our autism community can participate in while keeping safe and following the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) guidelines for gatherings and interactions with others.
The iCan Bike Camp is a program that 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.
SuperStars Camp is a one or two-week VIRTUAL multi-disciplinary arts camp for young people with autism and other disabilities, their siblings, friends and typically developing individuals.
