High functioning Autism support for teens in Barnsley. Young people with High functioning Autism struggle more than your average teenager

by TADS Barnsley in Barnsley, England, United Kingdom

At TADS we have worked with over 3000 children and young people over the last 4 years struggling with a mental health issue i.e. anxiety, stress, worry.

We predominantly run wellbeing workshops for around 10 young people, our latests data of 91 young people attending our workshops shows that 80% of mental health issues have improved and they feel happier, healthier and less isolated.

Young people with high functioning autism struggle in a group situation due to their difficulties with socialisation.  Just being in a group of people can create much anxiety and stress.

This is why we are fundraising to provide a workshop that just has young people with this developmental disorder so they can feel safe, included and not have to worry if they say the wrong thing.

Our data for improvement in this range of young people is significantly lower than the figure above.  

Each week we work with 80 children and young people.1580996997_1580996993310.png
