More Family Seminar courses for parents on way


After a successful trial in Slough, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering more free Family Seminar workshops to parents and carers who live in  the Bracknell and Windsor & Maidenhead council areas.

The seminars, developed by specialists from the National Autistic Society, will take place in September, October and November at Bracknell Open Learning Centre. They will be led by Gemma Coventry, our home visit support worker for Bracknell and Windsor & Maidenhead.

We are offering three courses:

  • Understanding Autism, suitable for parents and carers of children aged up to 11
  • Managing Anger, looking at distressed behaviour and meltdowns in children with ASC, how to cope and how to help children to understand and communicate feelings
  • Sensory Needs, looking at sensory systems and how they work, how people with ASC may process sensory information differently, how children with ASC may have different sensory experiences, and strategies to help with sensory needs.

The seminars are for parents and carers of children who are residents of the Borough of Bracknell Forest and the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and have a child aged 5+ with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition or who is on the waiting list for a CAMHS ASD Pathway diagnostic assessment.
