Autistic Spectrum Difference.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the number of individuals who fall into the spectrum far outnumbers the current number diagnosed. Having a neurological difference in a neurotypical world makes everyday life extremely stressful and it is not surprising that the statistics suggest someone with ASD (diagnosed or undiagnosed) is 7 times more likely to have a mental health problem their neurotypical peer.
I am developing an interest in helping clients come to terms with their ASD, whether diagnosed or not, (currently getting a diagnosis as an adult can take years). I have some personal experience of living with ASD and am now adding professional expertise by working with many individuals for whom autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Tourette's, and many other ASD traits form the backbone to their lives. I am also continuing to explore courses and current research.
