Youth Konnections is a program for teens aged 12-18 who are on the Autism spectrum. The program is for those who are verbal and attend a mainstream school (or FLO alternative). We aim to learn and experience new things, share information, have fun.
Konnections+ is a program for 18-30 year olds who are on the Autism spectrum. Once you leave school you can find your social contacts reduce or become more difficult to maintain without the routine of term time. Learning to hangout with friends, going to common community activities like the football or fishing can seem daunting until you give them a go. Come and try new activities, build your independence and have fun.

Social Skills and friendships form the basis of a good life. If you have positive social skills you are more likely to find and maintain employment, you have a lower risk of poor mental health and you are more likely to contribute to your community.
