Time Commitment

As the conversations between and about Autistic people have evolved, so too has Autistic culture. This session examines the unique culture of Autistic individuals that has developed as the neurodiversity movement has gained momentum. It also reviews the history of autism and the role of social media in the evolution of Autistic culture and reveals how the communication between allistics (non-autistics) and Autistics differs from communication between Autistics. It also examines the shared cultural and experiential understanding of Autistics regarding topics such as “masking”, “accommodations”, and sensory integration.


This workshop is designed for Autistic adults, their parents, other adult family members, and partners of these individuals. Professionals who support the autism community are also welcome.
