A-Stars

A-Stars logo

A-Stars is a local support group for families with a child aged 5 and over who has Aspergers Syndrome or any other Autistic Spectrum Condition.

We offer activities and a welcoming, judgement-free environment for the whole family every Saturday morning at 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Asperger's Base at Budmouth Technology College in Weymouth.

Activities include bingo, arts and crafts, parachute games, games console facilities, various outings and day trips and more.

Our aim is to provide activities at a pace and level to suit the needs of the members.

We provide a place where whole families can come along and socialize with each other.

We are very keen that brothers and sisters of Autistic Spectrum Condition children feel able to come along. Not only can they take part in activities if they wish, but they can also socialize with other children who have autistic siblings.

Visit our website for a list of weekly activities - we always welcome suggestions for activities.
