Reminder – youth club for young people with high functioning ASD – some spaces left!

7 April 2017

The HIT squad and Young Hackney Sports Unit have joined forces to trial a youth club for young people with high functioning ASD – for those who struggle to attend mainstream youth clubs. Suitable for 8-14 years with age appropriate cognition and mild language delay. We are very excited and hoping that this will continue to run long term if we have enough interested participants. So please can we ask for help to spread the word?

 

The group will be quiet and structured, with limited numbers, opt in physical activities, relaxation activities, visuals, access to large outdoor space and all staff will be trained in autism awareness.

 

Please would you share with those who may be interested? Please can you also share with any team members that I may have missed.

 

This will be every Wednesday for 7 weeks, starting from April 19th 4-5pm. Parents need to email hitsquad@homerton.nhs.uk to register interest. We also have a social story for those that might need it.
