Autism Berkshire is launching online autism advice workshops and support groups from 20 April, to help parents and carers and their families in a different way during the coronavirus shutdown.

The workshops will be bite-sized versions of normal sessions about Meeting Sensory Needs and Managing Anger, provided using video conferencing links. Anyone who would like to register an interest in these workshops or online support groups can find out more on the Autism Berkshire website.
