About All Aboard Club

All Aboard Club provides opportunities for autistic and ADHD children to develop their social and communication skills using their special interest in trains.

We run events around London and the South East, and have recently launched our TrainTime activity packs to a nationwide audience.

Run by autism and ADHD specialists, All Aboard Club helps to reduce social isolation for autistic and ADHD children and their families. Our events and activity packs also provide opportunities for the children to develop their social and communication skills, whilst enjoying their interest in trains.

Our events across London and the South East provide an understanding, inclusive and safe environment for children and their parents. The children can build and play with our huge train sets during our child-led play sessions. All our staff and volunteers have personal or professional experience with autism and ADHD, allowing us to support the children when required.

From our events, the children's parents develop a network of other families to share experiences. They also have an opportunity to relax while their children engage with our activities for up to two hours with minimal supervision.

All Aboard Club has recently developed TrainTime activity packs for the children to enjoy their trains at home. Packed with specially-commissioned activities, puzzles, toys and pictures, our TrainTime packs are designed to help the children share their interest and develop their communication, problem-solving and literacy skills.
