Making sense of your autism diagnosis

 

Getting an autism diagnosis as a young adult can be a moment of huge significance. On one hand it can feel like finally getting answers to questions about yourself, or feelings of difference from others. But an autism diagnosis can also raise many more questions that need answering. Ambitious about Autism have produced a collection of videos and blogs, all written or featuring autistic young people themselves, explain diagnosis, autistic identity and everything that surrounds it.

Know Your Normal Toolkit

 

The Know Your Normal toolkit enables you to describe what your normal looks like. Things such as how much sleep you get, how much time you spend on your interests and hobbies and how this makes you feel. So if any of these change, it’s easier to explain to people who may not understand your autism that something feels different.
