Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game that has many benefits such as encouraging teamwork, collaboration, creativity, problem-solving and develops social skills in a fun and engaging way.
Check out this TEDx talk on Why Dungeons & Dragons is Good for You (In Real Life) and an article from the Washington Post on 18 April 2019, How Dungeons & Dragons somehow became more popular than ever.
Teens and young adults on the autism spectrum can come along once a week during school terms. Their parents, siblings and friends can come to play along too.
Sessions run on Monday and Wednesday evenings during the school terms (weeks 2 to 9).
The groups are currently full but if you would like to go on a wait list, please contact us.
