Our January PDSG – Note


REMINDER:

Our next Post-Diagnostic Support Group takes place on Wednesday 30th January between 12pm and 2pm at the Lifestyle Centre in Crewe.

The title of this months talk is Atypically Autistic – ‘You don’t look autistic to me’.

The stereotypical view of autistic people is that we are all like Rainman or Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory; somewhat oblivious to what people think about us and all nerdy loners. More recently there has been an understanding that autism can present itself in other ways which leads to a very different type of autistic personality type than was traditionally thought.

This has been termed the ‘female presentation of autism’ and does appear to affect many autistic women, but other autistic people also relate to this autistic profile. In this talk, we will look at how women and others who do not fit the traditional autistic profile have been missed, mis-diagnosed and misunderstood.

After the break we will split the group into those that want smart phone assistance and those that want to talk about the presentation.

As usual, cakes and refreshments will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you there!

    Will this session be covered at a later date? As a recently diagnosed older lady, I was really looking forward to this session.

    Kind regards
