Autistic Adults

Autistic adults can get a range of support from Autism Berkshire.

Call 01189 594 594 (option 1) to get in touch with our Helpline advisers, who can answer questions and provide guidance on services and support. If you prefer, you can get in touch with them by completing our contact form or emailing contact@autismberkshire.org.uk

We also offer community learning courses designed specially for autistic adults, focusing on independent living and developing social skills and understanding.

The 197 Club in Reading and the Bear With Me group in Maidenhead offer regular opportunities to socialise.

We administer the Berkshire Autism Alert Card scheme, which helps people living with autism to quickly and easily explain their condition to others if they become anxious or stressed while out and about.

The National Autistic Society offers a range of advice and resources to help adults on the autism spectrum with topics including work and managing money as well as further and higher education.

Professor Tony Attwood’s website offers a useful guide for people with Asperger syndrome and their partners.

Berkshire-based Speech and Language Therapist and CBT therapist Ann Wilson provides reduced cost online CBT sessions for autistic adults who are struggling with low mood and/or anxiety, or who simply want to understand their autism diagnosis better. She has 17 years’ experience in the NHS with Berkshire Healthcare Trust diagnosing autism and is now providing CBT support on a private basis.
