IT club for young people with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism Project Leader

We are looking to start up a program called  ‘The Lab’ here at Studio 1.

What is The Lab you ask? 

The Lab is a growing network of technology clubs for 10 to 16 year-old young people diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism who enjoy working with computers. It offers one-to-one tuition by technology professionals in areas such as programming, 3D, digital design and gaming.

The Lab is guided by an incorporated national not-for-profit company, The Lab Network, and each local Lab is formed and managed by a local partner organisation (which will be RCLC)

By pairing young people who have Asperger’s Syndrome/High Functioning Autism with tutors who have technical expertise in areas of mutual interest, The Lab seeks to improve the wellbeing and life prospects of young people who are often highly skilled but whose condition can lead them to fall through gaps in the mainstream education system.

 

This is the short of it.
