We are delighted to announce that Hartlepool United will be hosting sessions for the new Autism SuperStars group.
Autism is a lifelong development disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.
Autism is a spectrum condition which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live relatively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support
Approximately 1% of the population are estimated to be on the Autistic Spectrum.
There will be two weekly sessions held in the Victoria Lounge at The Super 6 Stadium.
Parent/Carer Drop-In Sessions
Wednesday mornings (10am-12noon) - commencing 19th September. This will give parents/carers the opportunity to seek advice from professionals as well as other parents facing similar experiences and be greeted by a friendly face and a cuppa.
Monday afternoons (12noon-2pm) - commencement date TBC.
