Autistic Experiences Exploration
We offer an opportunity to explore one’s Autistic traits and better understand what being Autistic means by discussing different aspects of the Autistic experience, including special interests, sensory sensitivities, social and language differences, etc. This is a unique opportunity to better understand one’s internal experiences and needs as an Autistic and what these mean for their life and well-being. The questions become opportunity to discuss what is hard, what is awesome, and what areas of your life might need more support or modifications.
This is perfect for those that are Autistic or suspect they are Autistic and want to further explore or identify their Autistic traits. This can be particularly interesting for those that are high-masking and have developed ways to present as less Autistic in social situations or for those that were once told they were Autistic but were never given a chance to know what that meant.
The insights gathered by exploring one’s Autistic traits may be used to support adults who are interested in self-identifying as Autistic (as opposed to being formally diagnosed by a psychologist as Autistic), or these insights may also be used to encourage a comprehensive evaluation by a psychologist. But most importantly, the information gathered may help an individual better understand themselves so as to cultivate greater clarity and appreciation for oneself.
