WHAT IS AUTISM? -- Peter and Diane will talk about what autism is like from their own perspective. Keeping in mind that if you have met one autistic you have met one autistic.
THE IMPORTANCE OF INTROSPECTION -- Being more aware of sensitivities, abilities, and triggers when you are on the Autistic Spectrum will enable people to reach their full potential.
DON'T FIGHT THE SYSTEM -Too often we fight the system instead of working within a system. We also need to let people on the Autistic Spectrum develop their own systems.
SURVIVAL SKILLS -- We discuss a few Skills we have learned that helped us get through our lives so far. Peter is 26 and Diane is 59. So this 85 years of experience on the Autistic Spectrum.
MEDS In MODERATION -- We talk about how Meds should be taken with caution. How lifestyle is always important. Peter will tell in detail how certain meds affected him and why he doesn't take it anymore.
MENTAL PUBERTY (Adolescence on the ASD) -- We discuss the unique challenges that individuals face when going through puberty on the autistic spectrum.
CONGRATULATIONS YOUR BIPOLAR!!! -- Since Diane has also been diagnosed bipolar we discuss strategies of living with this disorder as well. Many people on the autism spectrum will also develop a mental illness just from striving to navigate the NT (Neurotypical) world and its stresses.
HOW PEOPLE SOCIALIZE ON THE AUTISTIC SPECTRUM -- We discuss the different way that people socialize on the Autistic Spectrum which may seem different than Typical people.
ARE YOU AUTISTIC? -- We discuss the new diagnostic criteria for the Autistic Spectrum in simple language. Have you ever wondered if you are on the Spectrum?
THE BENEFITS OF STIMMING -- We discuss why stimming (self stimulating behaviour) is good for people on the Autistic Spectrum.
WHY IT'S GOOD TO ZONE OUT!!! -- We discuss why zoning out is beneficial for people on the Autistic Spectrum. It helps us think and be creative amongst other things.
MIND BODY CONNECTION -- We discuss the connection between the mind and body in people on the Autistic Spectrum. Why you should consider this when you are working with them, and how it affects us in our day to day activities.
The Adaption Principle -- Learning how to "Adapt" to the world around us by figuring out our own strategies, because no two Autistics are alike. Peter and Diane will discuss skills and knowledge they have learned from living on the Autistic Spectrum. Diane for 59 and Peter 26, a total of 85 years and counting of experience!!! Tried and trued ways to help navigate unexpected experiences in our daily lives.
