My son turns 16 years old at the end of November and I wanted to know ideas and venues for a Birthday Party.  My son is autistic and he cant cope with the usual, balloons, clowns and busy places, he also likes lots of TV programmes that are for younger children but I want to try and give him a more age appropriate birthday party but one that he will still enjoy.  If you could help I would really appreciate it.
