The Autism Group - Fusion Club for young people aged 14 - 25 (Berkshire College of Agriculture)

We offer special interest groups for young people aged 14 to 25 who are on the autism spectrum.

Many young people on the spectrum have special interests which they would like to share with others, but lack the social skills and confidence needed to do so. We can offer opportunities to help make those connections in a structured and understanding environment.

We cater for children and young people that are of mainstream ability, but need support with their social understanding. 

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.

We offer a parent support group at the same time and location.
