Stowmarket ASD Saturday Clubs

These very successful clubs provide social activities for children and teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders aged between 5 and 18 years. The clubs provide invaluable opportunities to socialise with others in a non-competitive environment where ASD is completely understood and taken into account.

Our aims are: To provide social activities for children and young people aged 5 to 18 To encourage the young people to develop friendships and social networks and increase their independence, self-confidence, self-esteem and social skills To encourage inclusion and seek opportunities for the young people to take an active part in the community To provide support and a break for parents and siblings
