The Club

The Little Explorers is an autism friendly activity club based in East Farndon, Leicestershire. We have created a safe and understanding environment to have fun and socialise with other families.  Our innovative project using aquaponics creating academic learning opportunities, independence and a deeper understanding of nature.  The animals help with the therapeutic approach to education in conjunction with AAT (Animal Assisted Therapy), which is successful for many conditions including Autism, ADD, ADHD, anxiety and depression.  AAT lowers blood pressure, increases oxytocin, aids concentration, calms, builds confidence and social interaction.
