Supporting Teenagers with Autism workshop in West Berkshire changes date

Our forthcoming Supporting Teenagers with Autism workshop for parents and carers living in West Berkshire has been moved to a new date, due to a diary clash.

It will now take place in Hungerford on the evening of Monday, March 6, from 7pm to 9.30pm, to allow parents who have other commitments during the day to attend.

The workshop, at Hungerford Youth and Community Centre, in Priory Road, will be led by Dr Fiona Knott, a clinical psychologist and the co-director of the Centre for Autism at the University of Reading.

She will provide advice on communication, social skills and mental health to help parents and carers support children aged 11+ with Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism who were diagnosed while attending nursery or primary school and are now at mainstream schools.

We also have places available at more Supporting Teenagers with Autism workshops in Wokingham in February and in Slough, Bracknell and Windsor during March, led by Dr Knott or her University of Reading colleagues Dr Liz Dawes and Jo Billington.

Everyone attending the workshops will receive a handout pack containing a range of advice and information.
