Come show your creativity by building at Teen LEGO® Club! These fun-filled sessions will allow makers to build creations from scratch, as well as from predetermined plans. Many weeks will be thematic and will cause participants to “think outside of the box” to re-purpose and use existing parts and pieces differently. The goal of Teen LEGO® Club is to have fun, interact with others, and delight in a shared, common interest in a sensory-friendly space. LEGO® Club is open to teens with Autism or other developmental disabilities, as well as their non-disabled peers. This program is designed for teens ages 13-18 years old. Registration recommended, but not required. Attend all sessions, or choose the ones that work for your schedule!

Sessions are every other Wednesday starting January 31.

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.

WisconSibs Sibshops are workshops for children and teens who are brothers and sisters of children with disabilities or long-term illnesses.

Youth Sibshops (ages 8-12) are a spirited mix of new games (designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range), new friends, and discussion activities.

Teen Sibshops (ages 13-17) focus on self-esteem building, peer connections, and topics related to being a sibling of someone with a brain- based disability through activities and discussions.

Sibshops are guided by trained facilitators (school psychologists, teachers, counselors or adult siblings, for example) in small, age-appropriate groups.  All are trained in sibling issues, and always keep an eye open for participants who may need additional support.

Where: Autism Society SE WI, 3720 N. 124th Street, Suite O, Wauwatosa, WI, 53222
