Pre-assessment workshops for parents of children waiting for autism assessment still have free places available

Is your child on the Berkshire CAMHS waiting list for an autism assessment? Do you want advice on what support is available while you wait for an appointment? We still have places available at free pre-assessment workshops for parents and carers in towns across Berkshire over the next couple of weeks.

They run for two-and-a-half hours and are as follows:

  • Friday, July 7: Slough, starts 10am.
  • Monday, July 10: Windsor, starts 10am
  • Tuesday, July 11: Reading, starts 10am

The sessions will include a look at autism and sensory issues; strategies to help communication, sensory and behaviour issues; information on what happens in the assessment; and signposting for further help if you receive a diagnosis and what to do if you do not receive a diagnosis.
