Description

OSCA is a local support group for the families of people with autism, dyspraxia and other related conditions in Oldham.

We occasionally invite speakers to the meetings to give members a chance to discuss specific topics.
Activities are organised during the school holidays, also swimmings sessions and autism friendly cinema screenings are organised on selected weekends throughout the year.
