CLUBS

Our Special Interest Clubs are built around topics that young people told us they enjoy. You can find clubs offering  Arts and Crafts, Console Gaming, Tabletop roleplaying games, Pokemon, Lego and  more. Run by experienced and DBS checked staff and volunteers, sessions run primarily on Saturdays throughout the year in the Maidenhead area.

We cater for young people aged between 9 and 30 who have a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition and are typically of mainstream ability, but need support to succeed in social situations.

Our Clubs are currently operating virtually. If you are interested in applying for a place at one of our clubs contact ruth@theautismgroup.org.uk   or complete a registration form. Once a place is available we like to work closely with parents before the young person starts at a club in order to fully understand any support needs, and help reduce anxiety for participants. All places are offered subject to this approval process.
