Our social groups provide young individuals on the autism spectrum a place to build friendships and learn.
We’re committed to promoting and highlighting the unique talents and strengths of our members to the community and how much value they can contribute. Using a strengths-based approach, our overall aim is to engage and motivate participants and build feelings of self-worth.
We plan our social groups to reflect the diversity, individuality and the rights of our individual members.
Our social groups are planned, run and developed with the active involvement of our group members, and Autism West staff facilitate activities that group members agree on. These groups are great places to develop friendships while enjoying various activities, meals and excursions that they collectively plan, and where possible, we support the delivery of special projects such as coding, music, art and film-making. For instance, in 2016 one of our groups created a documentary!
Currently, we offer a range of social groups tailored to the interests of our members on the autism spectrum in Marangaroo, Fremantle and Mosman Park.
