Advice events for parents coming up in Reading

Two advice events taking place in Reading later this month will be of interest to parents and carers of children with autism living in the town.

On Wednesday, May 10, UTC (University Technical College) Reading is organising an evening for parents about autism.

The school, which specialises in computer science and engineering education for 14 to 19-year-olds, is holding the event to allow parents of autistic children or people who have an interest in autism to come along and network and share stories, strategies and contacts.

Then on Monday, May 22, Reading Borough Council is holding a drop-in autism and sensory advice event at Katesgrove Children’s Centre, in Elgar Road, RG2 0BN.

The council’s autism advisor, Jenna Redmond, and massage therapist Sue Miller, who has a wealth of experience of sensory integration, will be available at the centre from 12.30pm to 3pm to talk to parents and answer questions on ways to support children with autism spectrum conditions and sensory needs.
