Youth group for children/young people with high funcitonin autism – extended and date has changed!

22 May 2017

Due to the success of the Wednesday Pearson Street club (a high functioning ASD sports and youth club), we are now able to extend the group  for the summer term. However, the group will be changing to Monday evenings:

Mondays from 12th June 2017-17th July,  4-5.30pm at Pearson Street Adventure Playground.

Please share with your teams and with families who may be interested? Flyers attached.

We have only a few spaces available, but are running a waiting list and also planning to roll out the club to 2 other youth clubs on the other side of the borough from September.

This is currently key stage 2 and 3 only (7-14), but if there is enough interest we can begin to look at making a younger and older group.

The Monday club is for young people with social communication difficulties who want to hang out in a relaxed, unpressured and fun space. Suitable for young people with ASD who have mildly delayed language skills.
