Teen Life Programme

Teen Life Programme

The Teen Life programme is licensed by the National Autistic Society.  It is for parents and carers of young people, aged 10-16, who have a diagnosis of Autism. Each family may also invite a supporting professional. Teen Life aims to empower parents, carers and professionals to understand more about how autism is experienced by autistic teenagers. The Teen Life programme runs over a 6 week period, with sessions held at the Civic Centre in Newcastle. Applications are welcomed from parents and carers of young people with autism, in Year 6 or above, who attend a Newcastle School.

This year there are two Teen Life programmes running - one starting in November 2023 and a second in April 2024

The Teen Life programme in Newcastle is run by Dr Ruth Prested and Dr Samantha McKeown, who are both Teen Life Licensed Users.
