The Lab- Spots still available but filling fast!!
The Lab is our new technology club for children aged 10 to 16 years with High Functioning Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
The program offers a safe environment where children and teenagers can meet like-minded peers and create friendships, while learning valuable technical skills that complement their interest in technology.
At weekly Lab sessions, mentors will work one-on-one with students in areas that interest them, such as programming, 3D and digital design, video creation and gaming.
The Lab program aims to improve health and wellbeing through:
- the development of new friendships
- increasing happiness/motivation levels
