ASA Youth Groups – NEW Groups For 2020

 

Another thing we’re excited about is the opportunity to expand and enhance our support groups. We’re taking the first step towards this by opening registrations for our Youth Groups for 2020!

Is your child between 12 years and 18 years and diagnosed with ASD 1 (Asperger’s Syndrome) or ASD 2?
ASA Youth Groups offer a safe environment for acceptance, social interaction, forming friendships, learning coping strategies, practicing new skills and having fun.

Currently we have one group which meets weekly on Friday evenings, either at Virginia (North Brisbane) or in the community (ten pin bowling, movies or other activities). We’re hoping to establish groups in other locations – for example South Brisbane/Logan, East Brisbane/Bayside and/or West Brisbane. Final group numbers and locations will be dependent upon the number of families interested as well as appropriate and affordable venues being available. We’re also hoping to have regular monthly family outings to bring the groups together if there is sufficient interest in this.

Contact Us – The key to ASA being able to offer options to suit as many families as possible is in growing our participant numbers. So :-

  • if you have a child currently attending the Youth Group or
  • if you have a child that would benefit from attending or
  • you know a family who has a child that would benefit from attending

Please complete the Expression of Interest form ASAP as we have limited spaces.

If you have any queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Tom Moss our Project Manager (contact us here).
