for young people with high-functioning autism who attend mainstream school
We understand the needs of children and young people who have high-functioning autism (or Aspergers) can be very different. Often these young people have difficulty ‘fitting in’ and are expected to function in a mainstream world with minimal support.
Since launching Wild Rumpus interest from those with high-functioning autism has been high, and we have endeavoured to listen to the needs and interests of this group to make HiFA work best for them.
HiFA provides weekend programs specifically for this group with the primary goal of developing social skills and friendships with likeminded people. We hope that children and young people can develop social skills to the point of initiating their own social opportunities with self-directed friendship circles.
