Friday Lunch Break for parents of younger autistic children

We are running two special free Berkshire West Autism & ADHD Support Service Friday Lunch Break online sessions in October and November just for parents and carers of autistic children who are of pre-school age or in Years 1 or 2 at school (ie aged 7 or under).

Please note that you must be registered with a GP surgery in the Berkshire West NHS area (the Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire council areas) to take part – click here for a list of these surgeries.

Parents and carers whose children have an autism diagnosis and those whose children are on the Berkshire CAMHS waiting list for an autism assessment are welcome to attend to chat, share issues and ideas and get tailored advice from our family support worker Amanda Walker and family support lead Julia Cox in a relaxed atmosphere.

These events will take place on Friday, October 7, and Friday, November 4, from noon to 1pm.

If you would like to attend either session, please email us at and we will send you the Zoom link details.

  • We are working on plans for some more Friday Lunch Break sessions during the autumn, which will be open to parents and carers of autistic children from the whole of Berkshire. Details will be posted here and on our social media pages once they are available.
