Wisconsin boys with special needs experience scouting life

Here’s a story about a Boy Scout troop in Wisconsin for boys with autism and other special needs. These boys have volunteered, they’ve bowled, they’ve even gone to camp.

April is Autism Awareness Month… and all month long we’ve been highlighting how the disorder is touching families in our area.

When a child is diagnosed with autism, some may focus on the things they won’t be able to do.

But one a Boy Scout Troop is opening up a world of possibilities to these boys.

“When they put on their uniform, their whole attitude changes big smiles they are happy they know what’s going to happen they are going to their meeting,” says Scout Master Dennis Dzwonkowski.
