NEURODIVERSE SERVICES

Support for Neurodivergent Youth.

Ryther's Neurodiverse Services serves children and youth who need extra support to make connections with others and navigate their social worlds. Our programs use movement games, STEM projects, art activities, and role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons to create community while providing support for learning and developing social skills, group decision-making, and relationship building.

While no diagnosis is required for our program, our participants often have diagnoses of Autism, ADHD, developmental delays, and social anxiety.

ABOUT OUR SERVICES

Ryther’s Neurodiverse Services provides a range of individual, group, summer, and young adult support services for autistic and neurodivergent youth between the ages of 8-26 through our three programs: Aspiring Youth, Delphi Young Adults, and Seattle Creator Studio. We also provide trainings for parents, caregivers, providers and allies, as well as community events.

 

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:

  • All new participants are required to attend an initial enrollment meeting with their caregivers to determine if our program meets their support needs and, if so, which groups and camps would be the best fit.

  • Once program fit has been established, you will be sent an invitation to register.

  • Limited need-based scholarships are available.

  • For more information, call 206.517.0241 or email info@aspiringyouth.net.
