Don’t miss out on free Internet Safety Workshop for parents and carers of children with autism

There is still time to book for our second free Internet Safety Workshop for Parents and Carers, which takes place next week at our office in Reading.

The workshop is open to all parents and carers in families living with autism throughout Berkshire, to help them support children and young people with autism to safely navigate the online world.

Children, young people and adults with autism can be more vulnerable online. The workshop is designed to help parents and carers improve their own knowledge and confidence about the Internet and social media.

Among the topics the Internet Safety course covers are:

  • Social media websites and apps
  • Using parental controls
  • Ideas for guidelines on use of the internet and mobile phones.
  • The positive side of the online world, including tools and software to enhance users’ experiences.

The workshop takes place at the Autism Berkshire office at 7 Richfield Place, 12 Richfield Avenue, Reading, on Thursday, July 13, from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Tea and coffee will be available.

As well as parents or carers, workshops are open to other relatives of people living with autism, including grandparents.

We are able to offer the workshop free of charge thanks to funding from the Thames Valley Police Property Act Fund.
