Based in Maidenhead, the Autism Group runs several clubs for children and young people 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 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 aged between 9 and 25 who have a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition and are of mainstream ability, but would benefit from support to succeed in social settings.
Our Groups include:
Pokemon Club - share your interest in the Pokemon video or trading cards games and other related art and video game activities. Ages 11 to 25.
Fusion - will appeal to fans of multi-player console gaming or Pokémon plus trading card games, pool and some board games. Ages 11 to 25.
Arts and Crafts - age 11 to 25, build your confidence and make friends whilst enjoying a variety of arts and crafts activities.
Console Gaming - Age 16 to 25, meet others for gaming and game related chat.
GAP Club - Ages 9 to 13. Activities from all of the above clubs for a younger age group.
Parents do not need to stay but can stay on site if they wish to. Parent Support Groups run alongside our Pokemon and Fusion Clubs.
