An intro to Autism from the Autistic Perspective promises to be one fascinating webinar! How often do you hear definitions of autism, facts about autism and theories which are all missing one vital component? The Autistic perspective! Did you know that most theories, research and ideas about Autistic people are actually based on assumptions by people whoa are not Autistic themselves? It’s shocking to think of the amount of people who talk about us without ever including us or fact checking the things they say about us. It’s also shocking how many myths about Autistic people are perpetuated everyday all because people are basing their ideas on old-fashioned research and theories that were developed about us but without us.

In this intro to autism you’ll be introduced to the most current ideas, research and insights by presenters Evaleen Whelton and Jude Morrow. Jude was diagnosed as a young boy and he will share his journey towards self-acceptance as well as providing you with a very fresh perspective on how you can view Autistic people. Evaleen, founder of AUsome Training, was identified as an adult and is passionate about changing the narrative around autism. Alongside Jude she will give you a different way of looking at autism. Both Evaleen and Jude are passionate speakers and add their own light-hearted interjections to keep the tempo up while often discussing difficult issues.

Learn about:

  • myths and facts
  • what autism is
  • what autism is not
