The Autism Group - Fusion Club for young people aged 14 - 25 (Maidenhead)

The Autism Group offers special interest groups for young people aged 14 to 25 who are on the autism spectrum.

Our Fusion Club, for 14-25 year olds, will appeal to fans of multi-player console gaming or Pokémon and offers other activities as well. This might be trading card games, playing pool together or joining in on some board games for example.

All our clubs are aimed at young people of mainstream ability but who need support in their social understanding. Participants may bring one friend or sibling within the same age range on condition that they share the same special interest and a place is available. 

We will be offering a parent support group at the same time and location.
