About Autism Berkshire

Autism Berkshire was founded as the Berkshire Autistic Society in 1990 by a group of parents of children with autism, related conditions and challenging behaviours.

Today they are the leading autism charity in Berkshire and deliver quality specialist services, training and social and leisure activities throughout the county, guided by a team of trustees with personal and professional experience of autism.

Their mission is to help and support anyone living with autism in Berkshire. 

They do this by:

  • Providing information and advice through a helpline, events, workshops, outreach, publications and newsletters;
  • Running accessible social and leisure activities for children and adults;
  • Providing specific autism training and support;
  • Working with education, health, emergency and employment services and the six main local authorities in Berkshire to deliver autism-appropriate services;
  • Raising awareness in the wider community to promote greater understanding.
