Autism Berkshire SocialEyes course for autistic adults aged 19+

This free course for adults on the autism spectrum, aged 18 or over, helps to develop social skills and understanding.

SocialEyes was developed by the National Autistic Society in conjunction with people with autism and Asperger syndrome and leading professionals in the field.

SocialEyes does not ask people on the autism spectrum to change ‘inappropriate' social behaviour or to acquire social skills by copying the ‘typical' behaviour of others. Instead, it gives people the option of learning social interaction skills or alternative social strategies.

It focuses on eight social skills that people on the autism spectrum can have difficulty with, including starting and ending a conversation, body language and facial expressions, eye contact and personal space.

The course in Reading is made up of weekly two-hour workshops, running over six weeks in the evening.

The next course starts on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
