About the program

The Little Black Duck is excited to offer a new range of programs designed to focus on individual strengths and interests to help autistic teens build community and improve wellbeing.

These highly customisable interest-based groups are developed in response to autistic-focused wellbeing and adolescent research, showing that autistic teens

  • Find it hard to initiate and maintain friendships, particuarly with non-autistic peers
  • Are information based communicators, finding connection when sharing information about interests
  • Are lonelier than their non-autistic peers and do seek connection with peers
  • Find non-autistic socialising to be exhausting and challenging
  • Autistic people develop connection with others when they can share their interests with them
  • Have much lower quality of life than their non-autistic peers

Our interest-based social groups are designed to address these needs by developing a safe space for these teens to connect and form friendships.
