COVID 19 UPDATE…
These sessions are currently available either via video chat (Zoom, Teams, etc) or can be reserved to be held in person at our Oak House head offices in Bromborough, Wirral when it is again safe for us to do so.
These sessions provide opportunities for people with autism, or those undergoing diagnosis, and their families to ask a range of questions and discuss anything that might be on their minds.
It will be a time and a place where you can talk openly, in a confidential and safe environment, with two members of our award-winning Autism Training and Advisory Service team.
During these sessions, we can provide support by looking at strategies that can help a person cope, offer a listening ear to reduce anxiety, or give advice in how to approach employers for example.
We are unable to support or advise on financial or legal matters, but we can offer signposting to other organisations that may be able to support in specific areas.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes, with up to 3 free sessions available per person. After that, there is a charge for extra sessions.
Autism advice sessions are suitable for adults aged 18+, or young people aged 14+ when accompanied by their parents.
For further information or to book an autism advice session, please use the contact email or telephone number below. A member of staff will be able to answer you during office hours.

- attendees must sanitise hands with hand gel (which will be made available) before and after entering the room where the session is held.
- individuals must sit at the table provided with a 2-metre distance between them and the staff members.
Water will be available at the session and there is also a toilet facility. Alternatively, a virtual session is available if you prefer, using Skype, FaceTime, What’s App or similar video call service.
