Thanks to funding from BBC Children In Need, Signals are offering 8 autism friendly creative digital workshops including film, animation and video game making for ages 11-18. 

These workshops are primarily for those on the autistic spectrum but we welcome young people with other Special Educational Needs also.

While we do not exclude those young people with Autism Spectrum Condition or SEN from attending our regular holidays workshops we have designed these additional workshops to support those with ASC by shortening the duration, including more breaks, introducing a maximum of six participants and having two tutors that are autism awareness trained.
