Reading Support Projects
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic we are stopping all in person meetings for the time being. We are offering a daily drop in peer support group plus other online specialist groups.
Reading support groups
We run weekly groups, currently online:
Exploring being autistic
This ten week programme offers autistic adults the opportunity to explore how autism affects them, together with a group of peers. An imporant element of the programme is the chance for participants to share their responses to knowing or discovering they are autistic with peers, and have the space and support offered to process these responses.
You can see a detailed outline of the programme, read some FAQs and/or listen to and read feedback from some previous participants. You can also read an evaluation produced by Dr Laura Crane of CRAE; this evaluation was also published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.
The next programme will start in early 2020. It will be facilitated by Caroline Hearst. This programme is funded by the Lottery Community Fund, so free to join, however we do accept donations from participants so we can expand our work.
