Social skills group for autistic children?

I'm posting all over the shop today, but thought I might as well through this one out there, too.

Is there anyone in central/west London who would be interested in getting together a little social skills group for their autistic children?

We are an ABA family, so potentially we could get a consultant to help point us in the right direction and perhaps tutors could help facilitate? Or not? I was thinking after-school park meet ups, activities (climbing, trampolining, etc), Minecraft, trains...

Potentially siblings could be involved, too.

My son is 6 and at mainstream school with a full-time one to one. He is bright, and easy-going, with some lang/comm delays. Loves tech, Minecraft, trains and a bunch of other stuff.

Let me know if you're interested.

Have you contacted the NAS?

I live in the NE and my DS attends a social inclusion group which helps with social skills.

I was going to suggest NAS.

My ds has just started Lego therapy (Lego club!) through them locally.

I have contacted NAS as I live 2 mins from local branch, but they are currently only offering young adult/adult services.

This might be of interest to you all?

Absolutely! They are planning a west London group, but not until next year. I'm planning on being involved. Would be lovely to have something in the meantime, though. And I think sort of group I was thinking of would be a great forum for practising skills learned in a slightly more formal setting like a Saturday school.

Hello Yarnie,

I know this is an old thread, but I wondered if you had been successful in setting up a group or finding one locally. We are also based in kensington and chelsea.

Ah great, thank you. We were attending a group there last year. Will have a look to see if there is a relevant group.

I've seen lego therapy before and it's fantastic. A little bit too advanced for us at this stage though.

Thank you
