1/18 So today, with the support of @nicolaleaking & @BrownlessElaine, I brought the latest round of the Inside of Autism to a close.

I hate the sales pitch stuff, so this is me, just letting you know what the Inside of Autism is & letting you decide if it might be useful to you:
2/18 Non-Autistic/#Autistic people, whether you are Professionals/parents or otherwise: 'The inside of Autism' has two rounds left in 2022 (one in Sept and one in Nov).

Sept is 3/4 full already and November is 1/2 full.

Places go FAST (That's not a sales pitch, they really do)
3/18 But what is it?

Its training, but it isn't autism training. At least not like you're used to.

The course focuses on reframing the #Autism narrative from an Autistic perspective, based on current Autistic & ally-led research & aims to introduce new concepts & give new tools

1/4 If any Teachers and/or Educationalists are interested I'm very happy to be speaking at the @street_trust 'Excellence in the every day' in-person conference @HardwickHHotel on November 1st

Details below ⬇️
2/4 My talk is titled:

'What we know and what we think we know aren’t always the same thing: Supporting Educators to better understand their Autistic learners'
3/4 In it I will be both reframing the autism narrative and reconceptualising it for Educationalists through topics such as #AutisticMasking #AutisticBurnout #Alexithymia #Monotropism #Stigma #Invalidation #Identity #Communication #Behaviour and #Pathologisation

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
