Autism Berkshire - Autism in Girls - New Online Workshop

Autism in Girls joins workshops line-up


New online workshops about Autism in Girls, with Berkshire autism advocate Carly Jones, pictured, are a highlight of our autumn workshops for parents and carers who live in the Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire council areas.

Carly, who has two autistic daughters, will lead two workshops in November looking at the different presentation of autism in girls, the importance of having a diagnosis (finding her tribe), masking and anxiety. 

The workshops are suitable for parents and carers of primary and secondary school aged girls and young women, who have an autism diagnosis or are waiting for a Berkshire CAMHS autism assessment.

Other workshops for parents and carers in November and December include Understanding More About Autism, Meeting Sensory Needs, Managing Anger and Food Refusal in Autistic Children.

We will also be running a six-session Teen Life course for parents of children aged 10 to 16 who live in the three council areas – and school staff who support their children.
