ASD Family Help - Teen Club

MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE.

A teen club for children with Aspergers, high-functioning autism or associated learning difficulties (dyslexia, anxiety, OCD, ADHD etc) and siblings of children with additional needs who are in Secondary school.

Children must be able to access this activity on an adult to child ratio of 1:8. 

The aim of the club is to encourage socialising and making friends, plus getting out of the house for a few hours! 

We use a fantastic venue with access to mini pool table, Wii, Xbox, games, Ipads, chill out room, arts and crafts & computers. 

Refreshments and light after school snacks provided.

£3.00 per child per session.

**We are unable to book new children onto this activity without them first attending an assessment meeting.  We do this at the Family Fun Sessions which are held once a month (please see separate listing under Family Fun Session for details).  This allows the child to meet some staff, see the venue and assess whether we are able to meet your child's needs.**

Parents are not able to remain at this session (due to safeguarding policies), so children must be happy and comfortable to use the session by themselves within the staff to child ratio.  Attending the Family Fun sessions with parents present, prior to attending Teen Club, is the best way to ensure your child has the most success possible within Teen Club.

Booking is asbolutely essential via email to Rachael@asdfamilyhelp.org

If your child has not had an assessment meeting to attend Teen Club, we are not able to accept your child onto this event.  This is in the best interests and safety of all children, ensures we can meet every child's needs and makes sure we have enough staff to manage every session. 

Please make sure you bring your child to the door to sign in with them and do not drop off before 4.30pm.  Before this time, the venue is not 'open' as staff are setting up and ensuring the venue safety checks are completed. 

Our events are open to all affected by ASD or associated conditions (eg. Dyslexia, dyspraxia, OCD, Anxiety, PDA, ADHD etc)
