The Centre for Autism is a regional hub for research and training in autism, located within the University of Reading.
Research at the Centre uses a range of techniques to examine core features of autism and to support the development of clinical interventions. All work is disseminated widely to the public as well as to a network for health and education professionals, through regular lectures, workshops and special interest group meetings.
As part of the Centre for Autism, we offer an early intervention service for children with autism under the age of 5. To find out more about the Social Communication Intervention for Pre-schoolers (SCIP) programme, please click here.
Please note that we are unable to offer any autism diagnostic services.
Our research depends on the participation of individuals with and without ASC. Please consider joining our research database. Go to our research pages to find out about some of our studies or sign up to our database.
As many of us will be stuck inside, it becomes difficult to keep motivated and find things to do. Autism Berkshire has created a page full of fun activities to do at home or online with your children! Including, fun creative tasks, virtual dance classes and even the opportunity to travel the world with virtual reality experiences.
