We offer special interest clubs for young people who are on the autism spectrum. This one is for aged 9 to 13. Activities include console gaming, Pokemon and arts and crafts and provide a starting point for continuing to our other special interest groups. Our groups aim to provide a structured and predictable environment for the young people on the autism spectrum to improve their social and communications skills whilst sharing a common interest and having fun.
This group is for children and young people who are of mainstream ability, but need support with their social understanding.
A waiting list may be in operation. We accept applications from children from 8 upwards and or awating diagnosis to go onto the waiting list.
