Climbing with Autisim
Our climbing sessions children between the ages of 6 and 14 who are diagnosed with Autism, these sessions are absolutely perfect for children who have a moderate to high functioning autism and want to give climbing a go.
CHILDREN: These sessions are fun, exciting and challenging, don’t worry if you have not climbed before we and the whole group of climbers are lovely, very friendly and also very supportive.
PARENTS: These sessions are fun, yet are based around developing your child physically, mentally and psychologically, yes we know, thats a BIG statement!
We really do believe it though and the large group of parents and children who climbing regular can and do testifie to this, we can’t take all the credit though, climbing naturally lends it’s self to help many people in many different ways.
The sessions are 1hr long and fully instructed by our experienced, highly trained and fully insured instructors.
The bouldering sessions are held each Thursday at Bloc climbing centre in St Werburghs, Bristol, BS2 9SH.
