Coronavirus: Two new online workshops available

Autism Berkshire is launching two new online bite-sized autism advice workshops next week to help parents and carers and their families while the coronavirus shutdown continues.

The workshops, which will first take place on Thursday, June 18, are:

Understanding Food Refusal in autistic children and young people: A brand new workshop, which is available for the first time. Problems eating a wide range of foods are common in autistic people. This session will take a look at factors underlying food refusal, some tips to help and where to get specialist advice and support. This workshop will run from 10.30am to noon.

Emotional Self-Regulation: With advice for parents and carers to teach strategies to help children and young people on the autism spectrum to manage their emotions. This workshop will run from 2pm to 3.30pm.

Both workshops, like others we have available about Meeting Sensory Needs and Managing Anger, will use video conferencing to connect those taking part with our trainers.

Please note that these workshops are for parents and carers of autistic children living in Berkshire, or whose children are on the Berkshire CAMHS waiting list for an autism assessment. We regret that we cannot support people who live in other counties.

One of our team will get in touch to discuss your needs and explain how to access the sessions online – please note that our family support team are working from home at the moment, so they will call using mobile phones, rather than from our office number.
