Pokémon Plus Games Club and Short Break
Pokémon Plus is a club for children and young people on the spectrum, up to the age of 18, and their brothers and sisters to come and play Pokémon card and video games in an autism friendly environment.
It is an official Pokémon League venue so the children can "battle" other "trainers" one to one to earn rewards and take part in our knockout tournament if they want to. We have DS’s and Pokémon games available to borrow if needed and a choice of non Pokémon Games on the Wii and Game Cube for siblings not so keen on Pokémon!
Short break funding means we are able to offer supervised places for families in Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham so parents can go off and have a well earned break or stop and chat and have a coffee in our on-site parents room.
Registration forms and further details about this short break are available from the BAS office. Children must be at least 7 years old to have a short break place.
Pokémon Plus is open to families across Berkshire however we are currently operating a waiting list for families who have not attended before and who live outside of Reading Borough. Do give the office a call if you would like to be added to the list.
