About the program:

Sports are open to any child who wants to be there. As long as they want to play, they are welcome to join us.

Our mission statement is simple: provide our kids the same experience as any other kid who plays a sport. This means, of course, practice, frustration, achievement, daydreaming, running, sharing, communicating, bonding, teamwork, turn taking, following directions and friendship.

Parents can help coach (which really means play and share the experience)

We look forward to seeing you there and watching our kids succeed!

iCan Bike Program

Autism Society Members,
 
Attached is a brochure and registration form for the Easter Seals iCan Bike program. The purpose of this program is to help children ages 8+ to learn how to ride a traditional two-wheel bicycle without training wheels.

We will be hosting this program from July 7-11, 2014 at the Army National Guard gymnasium in Bloomington. We invite children with a developmental delay or disability to attend this exciting program. Children will attend a 75-minute daily session for 5 consecutive days. We have trained staff and adaptive equipment that helps children learn how to ride at their own pace.

We are looking forward to a fun-filled week of camp this summer. I hope you can join me! If you have any questions, I would be happy to discuss this program with you over the phone. You can contact me at 309-686-1177 x5230 or by email at twellenreiter@ci.easterseals.com.
