Description

Why a party for Autistic Children?

Autistic children can become isolated and depressed. Parents and Carers can experience difficulties and lack support. It is our aim that these parties will help both children/adults to make friends, share ideas and create a support group in the local community.
This is why and how Owen’s Party was born. Our aim is to fulfil the following:
Enable autistic children excluded from social gatherings to attend a party
Enable children to gain confidence and learn to socialise with peers
Most important, that it brings them joy, fun and the opportunity to be a child
Parent/Carers can share ideas and form a support network in their community

SMALL PARTY
Only 10 paying Children with carer/parent to attend each party. We have the use of the whole community centre, garden and there is a park next door so there is plenty of space to ensure it is not too crowded.
WHO CAN ATTEND
These parties are for Autistic children and their siblings, to be accompanied with parent/carer who is responsible for supervision during the party. We do not provide supervision.
DIAGNOSED OR NOT
Your child does not need to be formally diagnosed with autism. We know getting a diagnosis can take time or you may wish to not pursue one. If you think your child will benefit from attending our parties, please contact us.
AGE RANGE
Our activities are targeted to suit children aged of 5 to 12. During this age, they may see peers going to parties or after school gatherings and they want to join in but they are not invited. Or they may be invited but cannot attend due to their sensory needs.

However, autism is dimensional and not all children are the same. Therefore, at our discretion we may consider children outside of the age range, should they meet our eligibility criteria and the parent feels they will benefit from attending.
