    Queensmill offer an exciting opportunity for the brothers and sisters of Queensmill students to meet on occasions and share experiences.

    In the meetups which we have held on a saturday morning siblings are able to:

    • Meet other brothers and sisters of children with Autism
    • Discuss day to day experiences and the sometimes difficult parts of having a sibling with Autism
    • Have lots of fun with group activities 
    • Learn more about Autism and coping strategies
    • Use the opportunity to ask any question they may have
