SELF DISCOVERY GROUPS FOR LATE DIAGNOSED
AUTISTIC OR ADHD ADULTS

Neuroaffirming Online Group for Autistic Adults

Discovering that you are autistic as an adult can be many things including: validating, a relief to finally know, frustrating that you didn’t know earlier, and a catalyst for further self-discovery. We love supporting neurodivergent people to get to know themselves through an affirming lens with information, self-advocacy, and strategies for daily life based on personal strengths, preferences and needs. Doing this in a group setting creates possibilities for connection through ‘I do that too!’ moments and a sense of being part of the broader autistic community.

 

This group is an opportunity to meet other autistic adults, find out more about autism and how it relates to the way your brain works, and learn useful skills and tips. Each group will have a maximum of 10 participants.

 

This group will run online for 6 weeks starting on Wednesday 27 April 2022, with each session running for 90 minutes.

 

The topics covered over the weekly, online group sessions will be:

  • Life post-diagnosis (formal or self-diagnosed/identified)

  • Relationships (including friends, partners, family, acquaintances, and colleagues)

  • Work and study 

  • Interests and leisure activities 

  • Emotions

  • Self-identity and self-advocacy 

 

Sessions will be held online every Wednesday from 3.30pm to 5pm for 6 weeks. The first session will be on Wednesday 27 April 2022.  

 

The fee for this 6 week group program is $500, payable up front. NDIS participants can utilise NDIS funding under the areas of improved relationships and improved daily living.

 

There will time to take breaks during the 90 minute online sessions and opportunities to turn your camera/video off as needed.

 

If you were either diagnosed or self-identified as autistic in adulthood, this group is for you! To register, please call our reception team on (08) 9456 0411 or email info@amherstpsychology.com.au
