Arts 4 Us CollageArts 4 Us Specialty (Registered Programme for children and teens with ASD & other disorders)

Arts 4 Us Specialty Group currently is offered for school age children, tweens and teens on the Autism Spectrum and with related disorders at Orakei Community Centre. The programme is designed to support social skills and emotional literacy through art making. This programme combines the arts accessibility of our popular drop in ‘Arts 4 Us’ programme, with the individualised therapeutic support and small group size of our ‘STARS’ programme. For an initial free assessment/consultation to see if this is right for your child, please contact us (registration required for this group).
