All our Clubs will be as follows:
These clubs will enable the young people to develop new hobbies and to socialise, which is often very difficult for those on the autistic spectrum.
All clubs will be after school and some on the weekends.
Learning the art of Picture Taking.
Allowing autistic people to express themselves through photography is giving them the sense of being. The sense of being a part of life, a part of the world they live in. Capturing the beauty of their surroundings and seeing all their works allows them to feel a sense of worth, a sense of belonging, the most beautiful gift for a community often trapped in their own minds and in their isolation from the world outside.
Opportunity to socialise and Interact with others while creating the skills of board games. Requires concentration which is often difficult for those on the spectrum. Our aim is to help autistic young people in overcoming such challenges.
Games such as:
- Snakes and Ladders.
- Connect 4.
- Hungry Hippos.
- Chess, and more.
These games will help with social interaction, gross motor skills, problem solving, turn taking and patience.
It’s Smoothie Time
Juicing, making fruit and vegetable smoothies.
Learning to make delicious and healthy smoothies with combinations of fruits and vegetables. Enjoying the various combinations of flavours coming together. In this club, young people will learn the health benefits of these delicious and healthy options of natural smoothies.
Learning about how to grow fruits and vegetables.
Gardening is a great way to educate young autistic people about where some of our foods come from, which foods grows out from plants. Growing your own fruit and vegetables is very rewarding and a sense of therapy, seeing something so beautiful and delicious develop from a bulb or a few sprinkles of seeds is amazing and something great to learn. Our aim is to help young autistic people to develop a sense of pride in whatever they achieve in this fun and rewarding club. The best part is being able to eat and enjoy their achievements!
Future Clubs includes fishing, which will be great for during the half terms as siblings can also join in. Here the young people will have an opportunity to learn the art and skills of fishing with specialist instructors. This will be a great way of exploring what other interests our young autistic people and their families may enjoy. This will also be great to add to list of hobbies.
