Many children with autism love football, however social communication difficulties mean that it is not always possible for them to join a mainstream football club.
AP Rangers is our inclusive team for 8 -16 year olds which meet every Monday evening* at Maes y Coed Community Centre. There is a proven link between an autistic person learning and playing a team sport, and improvement in social communication and theory of mind. The children all love to play, and are always included regardless of ability, both physically and cognitively. With qualified coaches, and the AP staff on hand, we can support parent/carers help their child get the most out of the sessions, all while having lots of fun.
