ASRUS, Torbay


A social and support group for children and young people on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their siblings (with or without formal diagnosis) supporting and signposting parents, reducing feelings of isolation. The aim of the group is to encourage social interaction, play, personal awareness and a better understanding of self and others.

We run play sessions every Wednesday, from 6.30pm to 8pm (school terms only) which include arts and crafts, play activities, sport, music, forest school session and more.

A member of SENDIASS Torbay normally attends the sessions so you can have a private chat with them.

To see photos/videos of our sessions, please visit (and ‘like’!) our dedicated Facebook page.

YMCA, Dartmouth Road, Paignton, Devon, TQ4 6NX

 £3 per child, adults FREE (per session)
