SocialEyes course offers autistic adults help with social skills

Autistic adults living in Slough and the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead can now book places on a free SocialEyes course to help them to develop their social skills and understanding. 

The course is open to autistic young people and adults aged 18 and above and is taking place at Langley College, in Station Road.

The course will run for eight sessions on Monday evenings from 6pm to 8pm, with the introductory one taking place on October 21.

The other sessions will then run weekly from November 4 until December 16.

SocialEyes was developed by the National Autistic Society in conjunction with autistic adults and leading professionals.

It focuses on eight social skills that people on the autism spectrum can have difficulty with, including starting and ending a conversation, body language and facial expressions, eye contact and personal space.

This course is funded by a grant from the Heathrow Community Trust, which will also be supporting an Independent Living life skills course for autistic adults living in Slough and Windsor & Maidenhead early next year. 

  • A SocialEyes course, open to Reading residents aged 18 and above, will also be taking place early next year. Details will be available shortly.
