Yellow Ladybugs runs regular informal social events for autistic girls, generally between the ages of five and sixteen. We recognise that many autistic girls miss out on the regular birthday party-type invitations, and our events are intended to bring our girls together in a welcoming, fun and non-judgemental setting. Our events are also inclusive and sensory-friendly and we make every reasonable effort to ensure that the girls attending feel comfortable and have their needs accommodated.
The type of events we offer varies, as this enables us to cater for different interests, experiences and abilities. Popular events include special interest-based sessions such as Harry Potter, Minecraft, slime-making and coding; Our more unstructured and physical events include exclusive and sensory-friendly sessions at trampoline parks, climbing centres, circus schools and fun parks. We also enjoy exclusive access to a number premier venues including art galleries, museums, zoos, planetariums and aquariums. Our arts and crafts events are also very popular and feature regularly on our event calendar. In keeping with the birthday party theme, all our events finish with lolly bags and cupcakes.
Underpinning every Yellow Ladybugs event, our core purpose is to foster a sense of belonging for all our autistic girls and to help them connect with their tribe. We see our events as an opportunity to shine a positive light on autism, and to instil a sense of autistic pride in our girls.
Yellow Ladybugs is an Australian-based organisation and we offer events in Melbourne, Ballarat, Canberra and Sydney. Approximately 200 autistic girls attend our events each month, across these four locations. Our events are strictly number-limited and usually sell out within twenty-four hours of being advertised.
