“Made friends, tried different things trampoling, go ape etc”
‘My son is quite a shy boy, he has a speech disorder so is very aware he is not always understood which makes him shy to talk. Going to club where everyone is so kind and understanding and knowledgeable brings him out of himself and makes him more chatty confident and gives him a valuable opportunity to socialise, which he doesn’t get anywhere else’
“I had no peer group or people I could talk to about shared interests before – I didn’t mix with anyone from school “
Our schemes offers individuals and opportunity to socialise and have fun with peers during the school holidays, in a supportive and accepting environment. We try to create groups which are age and ability specific.We run schemes during Easter, Summer, Christmas and half terms.
One/two to one support ratios is available to those who need it and all our staff are autism trained.
