Slimebuster Workshop – 13th March 2018

The children had a fantastic time at our Slimebuster workshop on Tuesday 13th March 2018, and learned all about the science of making slime – perfect for National Science Week. They loved choosing colours and glitters to make their creations as unique as they are, and were thrilled that they could take their creations home.

Many of the children (and adults) who participated have sensory integration difficulties, particularly regarding smell, touch and texture. We are extremely proud of all who attended the session as although (as with all of our workshops) attendees can participate as much or as little as they like, all who attended handled the slime with their bare hands completely of their own volition; a huge step for many who came and a testament to their comfort at AP Cymru sessions.

Alongside sensory integration, the children demonstrated brilliant sharing and turn taking skills, and had a lot of fun socialising with their friends. It is extremely important to these children and their families that they are able to participate in fun activities in a small group setting, and AP Cymru strive to provide a wide range of activities such as this workshop to cater for every stage and age. The children come to have fun, and leave with increased confidence and self-esteem.

In order for AP Cymru to continue to facilitate workshops and fun activities for autistic people and their families, we rely heavily on public support as we receive no government funding. If you wish to make a donation, please click here. You will be making a huge difference to autistic people and their families.

Stop Motion Animation Session – 22nd January 2018

The children had a brilliant time at their stop motion animation session with Codez Academy. As this was the first week, the children could choose whether they wanted to work in groups or individually for the duration of the course, and started to think about what their end video could be.

The session began with a video showing the children what can be achieved using stop motion animation. Following the clip, the children created storyboards, and created draft figures out of Plasticine to get an idea of how their ideas can be brought to life. There was some fantastic team work, and amazing creativity from all of the children. We can’t wait until next week when they will start building their sets using recycled materials.

Vol nteering: all that’s missing is U!

We are filling our fundraising diary quickly, and have a large number of events planned already. Unfortunately, our core team is extremely small, and we need your help.

Join our volunteer bank today, and commit as little as one hour of your time.
