Hope Autism Care Centre is delighted to announce the launch of their Social Club on the 20th of February. It will be a place for children with special needs to come and learn new skills and play games in a relaxed environment.
Some of the things planned for the first term are basketball, football, an obstacle course, a sleepover experience day and arts and crafts. Also for the first term, we will be introducing road safety and a choice of an optional five week first aid class.
It will run every Tuesday (15:30 – 17:30). Each class will be an hour long.
The first aid will incur a minimal extra cost.
We will also have a weekly group for the siblings of children with special needs.
Parents meetings will be held once a month and guest speakers include young adults with special needs living independently.
The club will run according to the school calendar with some day trips planned for the Easter holidays and July (which will incur an extra cost) It will be supported by a team of experienced volunteers and is open to boys and girls and all levels of ability are welcome from the age of three up.
We also have the support of the community Garda and Firemen and are working closely with the Dublin VEC (vocational educational committee). We will also be working with the Blanchardstown Centre for Independent living.
There will be a membership fee for this Social Club of €50 for 6 weeks (this is subject to change). The membership if you wish to have a child in the social club and sibling group will be €80.
