The 2 O' Clock Club - Tring
A support group for girls with ASD/ADHD (undiagnosed and diagnosed) between the ages of 7 and 11 years. Female siblings are also invited to attend. The group meets once a month on a Sunday in Tring, West Herts. The aim of the group is to provide a safe social environment for the girls where they can make new friends and take part in a range of fun activities. There is usually a different workshop each month and these have ranged from Slime making to pasta making to first aid. Parents stay too so it is a chance for them to socialise and network.
