The Lab is a technology club for 9-15year olds with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism. It offers a safe social environment and tuition by technology professionals in areas such as programming, digital design and gaming. At each weekly two-hour lab session, two or more computer programmers and designers work individually with between 12 and 20 young people to develop their technology skills and interests. Young people also learn social skills and make friends with others who share their interests. Parents meet in a separate room to swap notes and strategies.
