Event description

Description

Content:

This workshop gives personal insight of the female experience of autism. As well as hearing a personal story, this workshop will cover the following themes:

  • why ASD is more commonly seen in males
  • why diagnosing females might be difficult
  • 'masking'
  • differences between males and females

Audience:

  • females with ASD
  • parents and families
  • partners
  • clinical professionals

Although we discuss young people and children, these workshops were not created for children. We don't want them to be bored during the workshop so if you do bring them please also bring their colouring books, iPads etc. and feel free to get up and go as much as you/they wish.

Feedback:

"I must say it's been the best course I've been on that has explained asd and I've actually gone away feeling like I understand more about it now."

"To be reminded about masking was really important. I have to remind myself that just because my daughter looks like she is coping, she will still need down time and I shouldn't push her too much."

Venue:

The room looks like this:
