The Hamlet, Johnson Place will be a new site for the Block Bus run by Alpha Inclusion and Communication.
The Block Bus will run sessions for children to teach social, communication and team work skills for children and young people and are all about fun with purpose. Using Lego® and other exciting resources, Caryn Saunders, a highly experienced Senior Outreach Practitioner, will personalise sessions to suit the needs of each child and young person.
Pauline Morgan, CEO for The Hamlet said: "I am so pleased about this new partnership. There are real benefits for using resources like lego to support high functioning children and people with autism. It makes sense for us to have the mobile Block Bus situated at Johnson Place, within close proximity of the city centre."
Sessions will run on Thursday afternoons and they are open to individuals and groups of children from ages 4 yrs – 16 yrs. Currently referrals from schools, health and social care professionals and parents and carers are accepted. Places are limited and sessions will run in six-week blocks.
