Who is this session for?
Young people aged 12-17 years who are autistic. This includes those waiting for an assessment.
Although the session does not include parents, there is an adjoining area for parents to wait in if they wish . A peer support worker will be on hand in this area to give advice or just chat and offer refreshments.
We have a range of Amine and Japanese activities, crafts and games to enjoy together with other young people, as well as individual activities if you don’t feel like joining in. There will lots of time for you to talk and share about Anime. We hope you will be able to meet some new people and make some friends.
What else is there?
You can borrow books and equipment from the sensory library and look at resources. AIM’s peers supporters can talk to you about autism and life as an autistic person.
What if I am very anxious?
We can arrange to meet you before the session if it helps, in person or by video call. We can meet you at the entrance as well.
How do I find you?
When you arrive at the Riverside Centre you will need to enter your car registration number on an IPAD in reception if you park in the car park. You walk straight down the corridor in front of you to the very end. We are at the bottom of the corridor. Claire, Jude and David are the people who run the session.
