Autism Sibling Support Project Grant Announcement
The Autism Society of Wisconsin is pleased to announce it has received a $4,850 grant from Autism Speaks. The grant will fund a one year Autism Sibling Support project in Wisconsin, designed to provide support to brothers and sisters of children on the autism spectrum.
Through the Autism Sibling Support project, the Autism Society of Wisconsin plans to hold at least 6 Sibshops throughout Wisconsin, in partnership with WisconSibs. A Sibshop is a workshop model developed by Don Meyer that offers peer support and education to brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs, within a recreational context. The Autism Sibling Support will also provide information to parents about supporting siblings through a newsletter article, webinar, and distribution of resources.
The Autism Society of Wisconsin’s mission is to improve the lives of all affected by autism. We’re excited to extend our support services to siblings through this new project.

Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for youth with autism and an opportunity to experience a residential summer camp.
Our vision is to provide an experience that enables campers to feel pride in learning new skills while being away from home. Campers will be with children their age, nine to fifteen year old youths (as of June 1, 2010), who share the same interests, skills, and wonderful gifts.
At Camp AweSum campers will learn new skills, gain confidence in being away from home, develop lifelong friendships, experience a summer camp without stress and anxiety, and be supported in all they attempt to do.
Camp facilities at Moon Beach include modern and clean cabins in a pristine Northwoods atmosphere. Meals are enjoyed in a family –like atmosphere of the Moon Beach dining hall. Camp AweSum is a typical camp experience with all the trimmings; arts & crafts, canoeing, hiking, swimming, fishing, campfires, and bog walks.
