Staying Safe on Social Media course helps autistic adults to navigate online world

Autistic men aged 19+ living in Windsor & Maidenhead and Slough are being invited to attend a free course about staying safe online, which starts next week.

The course is divided into two sessions, taking place in consecutive weeks.

The first session is on Thursday, April 26, from 6pm to 8pm, at Braywick Heath Nurseries, in Braywick Road, Maidenhead, SL6 1DX.

The second session will be held the following Thursday, May 3, at the same times.

The course is informal and interactive, taking a look at a range of subjects, including using social media, keeping your personal information safe on the Internet and understanding things to be on your guard against, such as cyberbullying and scams. Advice on where to get help if things go wrong is included.

There will also be a look at the positive side of the online world.

This Staying Safe on Social Media course draws on material used in similar courses we ran last year in Windsor & Maidenhead, Slough and Bracknell.
