Children’s Clubs

AP Rangers

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.

*Term time only

Experience Evenings

Throughout 2018, AP are facilitating a monthly session, each of which will provide a different experience for the autistic person and their families. From go karting to mini golf, slime making to animal encounters, there’ll be something for everyone. With sessions being held exclusively for AP Families, they can be assured that there won’t be a crowd, and the AP Team will be there to support the families every step of the way.
