RIT students were among dozens of community volunteers who volunteered during Lose the Training Wheels, hosted by the Gordon Field House and Activities Center Aug. 8-12. The camp helps kids with autism learn how to ride a conventional bike without training wheels, which organizers say builds self-confidence and provides inclusion with peers. UNYFEAT, an organization that supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families, sponsored the event. Here, Will Schlindler, an eight-year-old from Pittsford, gets support from Kris Spencer, a third-year interpreting student at NTID.
