About this Event
The talk is provided by AutAngel, which is a community interest company run by and for autistic adults to grow autistic community.
Autism is a common, but invisible, condition which is why its prevalence in society is not widely recognised. Most autistic adults are undiagnosed and many have no idea they are autistic. Myths and misunderstandings abound and often get in the way of autism being identified and understood.
The talk covers;
- An overview of autism, its prevalence, its origins, its place as part of neurodiversity.
- What sort of people are autistic and what sort of work do they do?
- How and why autistic people might behave atypically.
- Q & A
Caroline Hearst trained as an art psychotherapist and achieved a diagnosis of autism in adulthood after years of personal therapy. She uses these experiences and her extensive knowledge of autism to offer enjoyable and informative talks and trainings aimed at increasing understanding and acceptance of autism.
