Sunbeams play is a charity for children and young people aged 5-19 with autism. They recently added an additional group to support 16 to 21 year olds, extending to 25 through natural growth and development. They are open throughout the year, times vary according to term time, school holidays and age. Children will be invited to attend a two week introduction period during the session appropriate to their age and ability. This enables them to get to know the children thoroughly before they start and also for them to get used to staff. The environment and the other children and young people attending at Sunbeams Play they recognise children and young people may develop at different rates and therefore group ages are a guideline.
