Spin Out!

Spin Out is a Warehouse Circus initiative involving young people and adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as various community, government and corporate partners and supporters within the disabilities and health sectors.

Spin Out began in 2013 as an in school project at Black Mountain and Woden schools. The project was funded for one year by the ACT Government and involved  the delivery of circus programs throughout the school term, professional development for staff and the modification of training methods to cater for the diverse needs of the groups. Spin Out extended to include adults with ASD through a partnership with Sharing Places.

As part of Spin Out, Warehouse Circus delivers uniquely adapted circus programs for young people and adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which may or may not be coupled with other complex disabilities. All Spin Out classes are underpinned by introductory training delivered by Autism Asperger ACT. Trainers have also undertaken training in Holistic Circus Therapy.

Currently we have one weekly Spin Out program running which is open for enrolments for Adults with ASD. If you would like to know more about this program please click here.

Plans for the future development of this project include involvement of an Occupational Theropist to review delivery methods and outcomes, and the consolidation of the knowledge gained from the project into a published manual for delivery which can be utilised by other service providers and/or youth circus’s across Australia.
