Autism and Anxiety: an inside perspective

Tues 19th Oct  6-9pm GMT 

Autistic People tend to be anxious by nature – Jude and Evaleen ask, “why is this?”

Professionals, teachers and others will lead you to believe that autistic people are anxious because we “lack social skills, communication skills and lack understanding”.

This could not be further from the truth. The reason autistic people are anxious by nature, is a profound one, and it doesn’t come from any of the “reasons” outlined above.

How often do you hear the inside perspective on Autism and Anxiety? In this masterclass  Jude Morrow TEDX speaker, author and founder of NTI will host alongside Evaleen Whelton Founder AUsome Training and Konfident Kidz. 

Both Evaleen and Jude experience anxiety and share their experiences with you as two Autistic people. Evaleen has also extensively researched this area and will break down many of the myths around anxiety and Autistic people as well as providing you with strategies to alleviate anxiety for Autistic children and adults.

Jude shares a perspective that is not often heard and that is one of an Autistic child growing up in the school setting, feeling different and often treated differently and misunderstood even by the best intentioned people around him. His talk is full of insights, tips and things to watch out for when you have or work with Autistic children and teens.
