Are you a young autistic person aged 18-25? Do you know a young person who is?

We want to help!

We’re working behind the scenes to launch a youth-led programme for young autistic people. The programme will offer the opportunity to:
✅ Socialise in a safe, comfortable environment
✅ Take part in fun, inclusive activities (both virtually and/or in person)
✅ Build connections
✅ Gain qualifications and/or life skills

Our goal is to be inclusive, adaptable to each young person’s individual needs, and to work TOGETHER with our young people to make this project what THEY want to make it! AP Cymru is a team, and all of our team members’ input matters 🧑‍🤝‍🧑👬👭👫

Like Empowering Me Youth Programme - AP Cymru today to keep up with the latest news and updates! 👍

Exciting things are coming. We can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

If you don’t already follow “Sensory Stories” - it’s not too late to start!"Emotions aren't good or bad. They are SIGNALS to us. Our body bringing our attention to something."

This can be applied to ourselves as well as our children. So, let's teach our children that it is ok to feel our feelings... but when they are making us feel "bad" we should take a moment to figure out why... because then we have the ability to take control and do something about it. 💞
