Virtual Autism Advice Sessions
Gwent Integrated Autism Service are working hard to find alternative methods of support in these uncertain times of lockdown and social distancing. Instead of our usual face to face drop in sessions, we would like to offer a Virtual Autism Advice Session.
During the session you will be able to discuss any issues relating to Autism, in the same way you would at our drop-ins. The advice session will be run by two of our support staff, with our new Peer Mentor Worker also present in the background.
We will offer a face-to-face virtual appointment using Microsoft TEAMS. The advice session will be confidential. The use of Microsoft TEAMS is fully compliant with GDPR and Information Governance policies of ABUHB and Monmouthshire County Council. Guidance will be made available to support you to access Microsoft TEAMS. You will need to be able to access an electronic device that has internet connection. Please be advised that if you are relying on mobile data, some mobile phone network providers do not support access to TEAMS unless you are on an unlimited data contract – please check with your network provider.
We will pilot this once a week, for the next four weeks. There will be four sessions available each Tuesday. Each session will last for a maximum of 45 minutes. All appointments will be booked on a first come, first served basis.
At the time of booking we will need your name, email address and phone number so we can contact you in case of any problem with IT access. We will also ask if you could give a brief description of what you would like to discuss.
Autism Advice Sessions will be available on the 12th May, 19th May, 26th May and 2nd June at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1pm and 2pm
