“Life has been hard for me, and when I didn’t know I had autism, I thought something was really wrong with me. Now I see that I’m just “Different, Not Less”. We need self-awareness of our autistic traits, how they impact us, and what we are to do about them, and that’s what I want to share with you in this fun workshop.“
