Free autism training on offer to West Berkshire professionals

Autism Berkshire is working with employment advice and support charity, Graft Thames Valley, to run a free autism awareness workshop later this month.

The workshop is aimed at helping professionals working in a range of sectors to develop an understanding of what autism is, how it can affect autistic people’s social and communication skills, sensory processing and behaviour, and learn about strategies they can use to support autistic people.

Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, said: “April is an important month for autism, with the United Nations’ World Autism Awareness Day on April 2 coinciding with Autism Acceptance Week at the start of the month.

“We have already had a lot of interest in this workshop from organisations operating in Newbury and West Berkshire and hope that more will be able to join us on the day to find out how they can help and support autistic people.”

The workshop will run from 10.30am to12.30pm on Friday, April 19, at Broadway House in Newbury.

It is suitable for those with no previous knowledge or only a basic understanding of autism, plus those with some knowledge looking for a refresher session.
