Welcome to the Aspergers Youth Club

Here at the Aspergers Youth Club (AYC) we provide a safe, non-judgemental and fun environment for children and young people aged 8 years and over with Aspergers or High Functioning ASD in the Doncaster area.

We meet every Wednesday during term time at the Intake and Belle Vue Children's Centre on Ardeen Road, Intake, Doncaster, DN2 5EU, between 5.30pm and 7.00pm.

There is a Playstation 4 and a Nintendo Wii, both with a selection of games, two iPads, toys, arts and craft materials, Lego & K'nex etc. We also have a tuck shop, where you can buy a selection of crisps, chocolate bars, canned pop and other drinks, all very reasonably priced. Every month we have a cooking or baking session, we hold sponsored events, go out for meals, and have a yearly trip to the seaside.  There is even a separate sibling's room, for those kids wishing to spend a little time apart from their ASD brother or sister.

Parents enjoy sharing a cuppa and a chat, and offer support and advice to each other.  It's a great chance for kids to make new friends, which opens up new opportunities for social development both in and away from the club.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join in; should you require any further information please e-mail Karena at aycforyou@gmail.com  

We have our very own Facebook page - copy and paste the following link into your browser -

We look forward to seeing you!  

Please be aware that a parent / carer is expected to stay on the premises whilst their child is at the Club.
