Find out about your rights to claim benefts, particularly Disability Living Allowance (DLA), for children aged up to 15, who have been diagnosed as autistic.
The workshops are led by Autism Berkshire’s benefits adviser, Kevin Jackson, who has extensive experience of supporting families with claims and will include detailed advice on the how to complete the application form and what supporting evidence to include when making a claim for DLA.
The workshops are open to parents and carers who live in Berkshire, or whose children attend a school in the county, and will be held at Autism Berkshire’s base at 40 Caversham Road, in Reading town centre, which is a short walk from car parks, the railway station and town centre bus stops.
If more than one parent or carer from your family, such as a grandparent, wants to attend, please book a separate ticket for them.

- These workshops are supported by Reading Borough Council’s New Directions adult learning and employment service.
