At various points in your later identification autism Journey, you’ll want or need to tell someone that you’re Autistic (or think you might be). But how?

There are so many possible reactions, and you’ve heard of (or experienced) negative ones, and want to avoid those. But how?

In this workshop, I’ll offer a few key tips for approaching this so it is more likely to go well, along with some things to consider and several sample scripts to get you started with what to say.

We’ll cover family/personal as well as work situations.

This workshop is geared toward people who have figured out (or suspect) they are Autistic or AuDHD in their adult years, and is inclusive. The presenter is likewise AuDHD.

Feedback from my previous free workshops:

Is this free because it's a cleverly disguised sales pitch?

Nope. I hate that.

What I’ll be sharing with you here is a BS-free perspective from my own lived experience and strategies that I share with my clients, but I’m not going to be pitching my services. I’ll be sharing strategies that you can use on your own with just what is presented here.

You can see that in action in my previous free workshops.

What you will get: after registering, you’ll receive a few intro emails from me with links to my other free resources, and then get my newsletter every other Tuesday, on building an autism-friendly life. If you don’t want that, you can unsubscribe anytime.

Afterwards, I’ll be making the slides available for a small fee. (The entire recording and transcript will remain free.)

Who this is for

  • Autistic, AuDHD, and other neurodivergent individuals.
  • Anyone who has figured out after childhood that they are Autistic (or suspect they are), and are wanting to talk about that with others, but aren’t sure what to say or how to have that conversation, or deal with what comes next.

Feedback from my previous free workshops:

About accessibility

  • This is an inclusive, gender-affirming, trauma-sensitive,* and BS-free zone. ALL are welcome.
  • The workshop will be conducted via Zoom Meeting. You are welcome to participate with camera off or on, to listen quietly or communicate via chat or voice, to fidget, move, stimm, tic, or look away throughout. 
  • Live automatic captions will be on. You may turn the chat/self-view off or on as you like.
  • For executive function help, reminders will be emailed at T -1day, -3hrs, -1hr, and an optional SMS at -15min only if phone number is entered on signup.
  • You may submit questions in advance to be answered during the workshop, in case you cannot attend live, and to guide the presenter in making the content.
  • You’re welcome to request other accommodations as needed.

*The presenter is trauma informed and trauma sensitive, but you are the best judge of what you can handle at the moment. Please take care of yourself.
