Chance for parents to find out about adult support service

Parents and carers of older autistic teenagers and young adults in the west of Berkshire can find out about help and activities available from the new Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service at a free Transition to Adulthood workshop from the Berkshire West Autism & ADHD Support Service.

The workshop is taking place online on Thursday, February 23, from 7pm to 8.30pm

It will feature a presentation from Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, about the advice and support now available to autistic adults in the county, plus time for questions.

  • This event is open to parents and carers of young people aged 15 to 25 who have a diagnosis of autism, or are on the waiting list for a Berkshire CAMHS assessment, and are registered as a patient with a GP surgery that is part of the Berkshire West NHS area, which serves Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire.
