This session is for adults with autism in the workplace and will take you through the fundamentals of non-autistic communication. This is to help put you on more of a level playing field when it comes to effectively interacting in the workplace. It also provides you with an understanding of why non-autistic people act in the way they do when it comes to social interaction. Thus reducing your frustration and improving your tolerance and acceptance of non-autistic quirks.
For example, we explain that the question ‘how are you?’ is often just code for hello. The strange rituals non-autistic people have around social interaction actually have an important purpose and knowing about this this is likely to benefit you. We also consider autistic ways of doing social interaction.
