With the recent splurge of spring weather that has swept over the United States, many people are left wide-eyed for spring to finally appear in full force. However, this season comes with its own challenges and disadvantages for children with autism.
For most children, there are basic pieces of childhood that make up their ‘kid experience.’ Everyone’s list may be different but most include one thing— learning to ride a bicycle. Unfortunately, less than 20 percent of kids with autism and 10 percent of those with Down syndrome learn to ride a bike.
Here at the International Center for Autism Research and Education, inc. (ICare4Autism) we have come across an interesting video online. CBS anchor Seth Doane reports, in the attached video clip, there is an annual camp in Ann Arbor, Michigan that is set on helping these special children pass their obstacles.
