1st September 2023 at 8:00 am - 1st January 2024 at 5:00 pm


Coming to the Black Country in Autumn 2023, our Teen Autism Confident programmes.

They offer an opportunity to learn more about autism in a small, supportive, group setting and to share experiences and identify strategies that could help in day-to-day life.

Feel free to email Amy on with any questions.

The 6 weekly topics covered include:

  • Understanding Autism
  • Social Communication
  • Sensory Awareness
  • Anxiety
  • Self-esteem and Self-image (teens)
  • Disclosure(adults) / Transitions, Change and the Future (teens)

The first programme will be completely online and the second programme will have the option of meeting for a 1-2-1, in-person session with an autism specialist at the first and final session.

Who can attend:

  • Autistic teenagers (over 13 years)
  • It does not matter when your diagnosis was received
  • Your GP (doctor) comes under the Black Country & West Birmingham CCG.
  • You are able to commit to attending weekly sessions.
