You Are Not Alone – Lived Experience
You’re not alone. A session helping parents and carers supporting those on the autistic spectrum, autistic people and those awaiting diagnosis.
The main speaker for this session will be Becky Choat who is the Project Lead for Increasing Understanding of Autistic Women and Girls with the Scottish Women’s Autism Network (SWAN). Prior to this she worked for many years in Education, Children and Families community work, and Health & Social Care. She is looking forward to sharing some of her understanding and learning around parenting autistic girls using her lived experience as an autistic woman and mother to an autistic daughter.
The night won’t just be for women as our popular “Panel Time” will have Becky, and men and women on the autistic spectrum answering your questions. We also have a “Blether and Browse Time” where you can catch up with support offered by local organisations and chat with others who have come.
This event is part-funded by the Scottish Government Health and Wellbeing Fund and Scottish Autism.
