Don’t miss out on West Berkshire workshops for parents

There is still time to register for free places at a number of workshops in West Berkshire this month to help parents of children with autism or who are waiting for an autism assessment.

Two places are available at a Supporting Teenagers with Autism workshop in Hungerford next Monday, March 6, with Dr Fiona Knott, a clinical psychologist and co-director of the Centre for Autism at the University of Reading. The workshop runs from 7pm to 9.30pm at Hungerford Youth and Community Centre, in Priory Road.

We just have one place left on a two-day Mental Health First Aid course in Hungerford, offering advice on supporting children aged eight to 18, which takes place on Monday, March 13, and Tuesday, March 14, also at Hungerford Youth and Community Centre. Please note that participants must be able to attend both days of the course, which runs from 9am to 5pm. Tea, coffee and lunch are provided.

There is also still time to book free places at pre-assessment workshops – these are available at two venues in West Berkshire, Calcot and Hungerford – and provide support to parents and carers with children on the Berkshire CAMHS waiting list for an autism spectrum diagnostic assessment.

The workshop in Hungerford is on Tuesday next week, March 7, from 10.30am to 1pm, at the Croft Hall, in The Croft. The workshop in Calcot is on Monday, March 20, from 10am to 12.30pm, at West Berkshire Council’s East Area Family Hub (formerly Calcot, Theale and Area Children’s Centre), in Curtis Road.
