Our Special Interest Clubs are built around topics that young people told us they enjoy. You can find clubs offering Pokemon Magic, Arts and Crafts and Console Gaming plus our new Saturday morning starter club for age 9 to 13 combining popular activities from each of our other clubs. Run by qualified and DBS checked leaders and volunteers, sessions run on Saturdays throughout the year in the Maidenhead area.

We cater for young people aged between 9 and 25 who have a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition and are typically of mainstream ability, but need support to succeed in social situations.

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.

You can find our Special Interest Clubs at:

  • Harmony Education Centre, 4 Cordwallis Street, Maidenhead, SL6 7BE
  • Berkshire College of Agriculture, Burchetts Green. SL6 6QR
  • Braywick Heath Nurseries, Braywick Road, Maidenhead. SL6 1DX
