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.

The Duck: A Play by autistic playwright, Rhi Lloyd-Williams
The Duck reveals the authentic voice of an autistic woman as she explores wheat her diagnosis means to her. Using the idea of being diagnosed as a ‘Duck’ instead of the ‘Autism’ word that people so often misunderstand, this one-woman play built around storytelling and memories, and designed to make connections between different ways of thinking.

      Hello Liz, yes, there is quite a large car park next door to the police station which is perhaps a 1 minute walk away from Crewe Lifestyle Centre. It does cost, however £1 of the cost can be refunded upon leaving the Centre upon presentation at the desk of the car parking ticket.
