This 11-week online program is co-designed and peer lead by a facilitator/s on the spectrum. It offers neurodiverse participants with the opportunity to reframe autism by acknowledging that despite experiencing challenges, neurodiverse individuals also possess a range of strengths that can be useful for navigating work, relationships and life.
The program covers a range of topics including the social model of disability and neurodiversity, the benefits of neurodiversity to employers, culture and society, fluctuating functioning and how to manage and plan for different situations. The aim is to help participants understand how autism affects them personally and thereby increase their confidence and self-awareness.
Interviews will be conducted closer to the start date with our program facilitator to ensure the program is properly suited to you.
