What is Autism?
Autism affects the way a person experiences their environment and therefore the way they communicate. Autistic people often experience their senses more intensely than others meaning the world can feel overwhelming at times. There are many skills associated with Autism such as honesty and directness, attention to detail, an ability to find or create patterns, processing information and memory. At Genius Within our approach with clients is to maximise their strengths, as well as develop strategies to remove obstacles.
A broad spectrum
Autism is often referred to as a spectrum because experiences vary so widely from person to person. Whilst this is true, it is best not to think of it as a straight line, but rather a colour wheel with everyone having different strengths and challenges.
Helping to find your Genius Within
Our Autistic clients most commonly ask for help with the following areas:
- Verbal Communication
- Time Management
- Organisation Skills
- Understanding Neurodiversity
Everyone we work with has a bespoke plan that is designed to help them access their inner genius. The plan may include strategies on the above areas, or it might include other areas where they feel they need more support to work at their best.
