Our family is changing and growing…
Due to popular demand, our charity has changed its eligibility criteria to all families with an autistic member, either before or after receiving their diagnosis.
We provide support services for autistic people and their families during all stages of their autism journey, whilst providing inclusive activities for autistic children and their siblings.
There are two options when you join our AP Family:
Family Membership – £7.50 per month (minimum donation) – provides access to: our private Facebook parent/carer group, book lending library and sensory lending service; plus discounted access to our monthly activities, summer programme activities, and parent/carer workshops, plus Face-to-Face support services and our Autism & Me Programme.
After School activities
We have provided lots of activities for your child and their siblings over the previous years. Chess, tennis, arts & crafts, football, Lego, board games plus much more. These activities are great for our children to practice their social skills, improve their confidence and make new friends.
Our team is looking forward to meeting you and your family.
No one really understands the emotions, stress, worry, uncertainty and practical implications that having a child with autism can bring unless they have had a similar experience. No one can understand the euphoria that you feel when your child has reached the slightest – and to some remarkable – milestones and the strengths and closeness it can bring to your family, unless they have a shared experience.
What workshops, courses, clinics and events can you expect to attend?
Workshops provided by Geoff Evans – Autism Consultant are booked for our families to attend on topics such as challenging behaviour, sexuality and puberty, anxiety and shutdowns. Guest speakers are bought in for you to hear varying perspectives from an autistic persons point of view. Clinics are provided by professionals such as occupational therapists, speech & language, play etc.
We provide a fun packed activity programme for your families to enjoy during the Summer Holidays!
