Parents and carers of autistic children, or whose children are on the Berkshire CAMHS NHS waiting list for an autism assessment, living in the Borough of Wokingham can benefit from a series of Autism Seminars for Families workshops early in 2019.
Running from January to March and free of charge, the courses look at different aspects of autism and how best to support autistic children. They were developed by the National Autistic Society.
The three workshops, which will be held at St Paul’s Church, in Reading Road, Wokingham, on Fridays from 9.30am to 2.30pm, are as follows:
- January 18: Understanding Autism, including a look at the Berkshire CAMHS autism assessment process and support while your child is on the waiting list
- February 8: Meeting Sensory Needs
- March 8: Managing Anger
Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, will lead the courses in conjunction with Berkshire autism advocate and trainer Carly Jones.
Jane said: “The Autism Seminars for Families are always in high demand, wherever we hold them in the county. I would advise parents to register straight away, so they don’t miss out on the valuable information they offer and the chance to meet other parents and share experiences.”
