Autism Berkshire - Fun Football Sessions

These sessions are on hold temporarily.

Children can join fun football sessions


We are now running some fun football sessions for children on Saturday mornings at Highdown School, in Emmer Green, Reading.

There are two sessions available, from 10am to 11am for 8 to 11-year-olds, and from 11am to noon for 12 to 15-year-olds.

Note that places must be confirmed in advance - please do not just turn up on the day, to avoid disappointment. See below for details of how to register.

The sessions are open to children who have an autism diagnosis or are on the Berkshire CAMHS waiting list for an autism assessment. Priority will be given to Reading residents. 

Those taking part need to be attending mainstream schools, able to follow instructions and not need one-to-one support, as staff numbers are limited.

If you would like to express an interest in your child or children joining the football sessions, please email us at contact@autismberkshire.org.uk and put Football in the subject line - we will get in touch. Please include a daytime telephone number.
