Friendly, fun and confidence boosting recreational tree climbing for people on the autism spectrum.
These sessions are for people who might not feel comfortable or ready to join a regular Goodleaf 2 hour session. We climb in small groups of up to 4 people. Friends and family are welcome too.
We've found people with autistic spectrum disorder really love and benefit from tree climbing and here's why:
- Recreational tree climbing is, by its nature, a calm activity and being close to nature can really help to bring down anxiety levels.
- Instructions are clear and simple to learn and the tree climbing technique we teach is repetitive.
- We focus on supporting and encouraging individuals as they climb. There is no pressure to reach the top of the tree, or even to go halfway.
- Tree climbing with Goodleaf is a brilliant way to boost self-confidence as many people achieve more than they expected.
