Resource for Autism offer specialist play and youth clubs for children and young people aged 5– 19 years across various locations in Birmingham and Walsall. One to one support is available in these settings and all staff are autism trained. Support can be given to enable young people make the transition from home to clubs through home visits, social stories, and visual aids. We do not provide transport to and from clubs but will help negotiate with local social services for help with this where appropriate. Clubs are run at weekends and after school in various venues. They are age and ability specific and once your referral is received your child will be assessed as to which club would best suit their needs. There is likely to be a waiting list for clubs. There is a small charge which is means tested and no one is turned away for financial reasons but everyone pays at least something. If you would like a place please fill in the referral form which can be completed via our website. Please also refer to your local authority Short Breaks Local Offer for details of other schemes running in your area.
