This will be neuro-affirming workshop, highlighting issues of discrimination and stigma, and considering intersectionality and the impact on autistic people from multiple minority groups. By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained valuable insights and practical tools to enhance their effectiveness in working therapeutically with autistic individuals, ultimately promoting their well-being, autonomy, and quality of life.
