Autism Pre-Assessment support

Autism Berkshire works with the Autism Pathway team at Berkshire CAMHS and the Berkshire West NHS Clinical Commissioning Group to provide information and signposting advice to parents and carers with children aged 5+ who are on the waiting list for an autism spectrum assessment.

The autism advice workshops about Understanding Autism that we offer as part of the Berkshire West Autism & ADHD Support Service include information about the CAMHS autism assessment process and are led by trained staff from Autism Berkshire who are also parents of children and young people on the autism spectrum and have first-hand experience of the process. Click here for details of our workshops for parents and carers.

Our Home Visit service offers support, information and advice in an informal setting to parents and carers. We can visit you:

  • While you are waiting for an assessment for your child
  • After a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition
  • To support you during a crisis or period of difficulty

Our Helpline team can also answer questions – call them on 01189 594 594 (option 1) or email

Our services are supported by funding from the Berkshire West NHS Clinical Commissioning Group.
