Autism Berkshire

Autism Berkshire was set up in 1990 by parents of children with autism, autism-related problems and challenging behaviours.

We now have more than 600 members, including individuals, families and professionals.

The main aims of the charity are to provide a comprehensive advice and information service for parents, carers and professionals and to offer social and leisure activities for autistic people aged five and above.

You can call our helpline from 10am to 1pm from Monday to Friday on 01189 594 594 or email our advisers at contact@autismberkshire.org.uk

Face-to-face appointments are also available at our office in Reading or the YES Shop in the Queensmere Centre in Slough.

We also provide a Home Visiting Service to offer advice to parents and carers of children with autism. For appointments with our Windsor & Maidenehead support worker, Sharn Fallows, please contact the office. 

We run support grpups for parents, carers and grandparents who look after children with autism.

We support parents and carers of children on the autism spectrum or who are waiting for a CAMHS autism assessment, by running a wide range of workshops on aspects of autism and supporting children and young people with autism, including sensory needs and managing anger.

Community learning course and social groups for autistic adults are also available.

Autism Berkshire also provides training to professionals to raise awareness of autism and issues associated with autism.  

The charity issues the Berkshire Autism Alert Card and manages the scheme on behalf of the alert card working group.

Anyone who becomes a member of Autism Berkshire has access to our popualr family fun days at Thames Valley Adventure Playground in Taplow and our library of books about autism and sensory items and toys.
