Adult Carers Advice & Support -


Auticulate is a support group for young people (aged 8-16) with a diagnosis of autism who attend mainstream schools. 

We have places available at our Junior Group which will be starting soon. Please email for a registration form.

The Senior group is heavily oversubscribed with a long waiting list. We are therefore not taking further applicants at this time. We will advertise when places become available.

We meet in Reading, on Wednesdays during term-time, between 4:30pm-6:30pm. 

We cover a wide range of social, communication and life-skills through a programme of education, discussion, role play, peer mentoring and real life practice in a range of everyday experiences including using public transport, shopping, restaurants and cafes, and leisure activities.

Our group ensures our young people;

-Have positive social experiences in a safe environment.

-Grow in self-esteem and social confidence.

-Develop greater awareness and understanding of social situations and how to stay safe.

-Become increasingly independent, developing skills that will last them throughout life.

We are very grateful to the Lions Cub of Reading and The Good Exchange for supporting Auticulate.
