‘I think I’m Autistic… What now?’… a thought that increasing numbers of adults, some even in their 60s, 70s or 80s, are faced with. It can be a shock to realise the reason for decades of struggle, of not ‘fitting in’ and feeling inadequate or isolated, might be because you have been living with unrecognised obstacles, living as an Autistic person in a non-Autistic world, and without the benefit of community support or self-awareness.
Help is at hand. We will explore your options, from clinical assessment to finding community, making decisions about disclosure, working out how life changes might transform the way you live and much more. Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences, hopes and worries on the evening (anonymously if needed) as we troubleshoot the topics that matter to you.
We will also look into the diagnostic process: how it is framed, what it sets out to achieve, what it misses, and working through the important question of whether seeking diagnosis is the right choice for you.
