Autism advice seminars for parents and carers come to Wokingham for first time

Autism Berkshire is delighted to announce its first ever series of Autism Seminars for Families to take place in Wokingham.

Running from October to December, these workshop sessions are for parents and carers of autistic children, or whose children are on the Berkshire CAMHS NHS waiting list for an autism assessment, and live in the Borough of Wokingham. They are free of charge.

The courses were developed by the National Autistic Society. The three workshops, which will be held at St Paul’s Church, in Reading Road, Wokingham, on Thursdays from 9.30am to 2.30pm, are:

  • October 11: Understanding Autism, including a look at the Berkshire CAMHS autism assessment process and support while your child is on the waiting list
  • November 15: Meeting Sensory Needs
  • December 6: Managing Anger

Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, said: “The Autism Seminars for Families have been in high demand elsewhere in the county.

“Previously, parents in Wokingham have had to travel to Reading to benefit from them, so we are delighted to be able to provide them in Wokingham as well.

“We expect them to be popular, so I would advise parents to register straight away, so they don’t miss out.”

  • The NAS Autism Seminars for Families are funded by the Berkshire West NHS Clinical Commissioning Group.
