About this Event
Michaela will be hosting this meet-up. The DISCUSSION TOPIC for the session is NON-SENSORY AUTISTIC SENSITIVITIES.
Questions to think about:
Do you experience autistic sensitivities, other than the ones relating to the senses of the body?
Are you highly sensitive to the feelings of others?
Do you feel strongly about injustice, dishonesty, hypocrisy or disloyalty?
Are you deeply affected by instances of environmental damage and cruelty to animals and people?
Do you have a keen aesthetic sense e.g. in nature, art, poetry or song lyrics?
We find having a discussion topic helps people who would like to prepare what they want to say in advance but we won't stick to the subject for the whole time so it's fine to go completely off topic if you want. This event is very informal and you don't have to be there for the whole session if you want to leave early.
The meeting room at The Florrie is a calm, quiet space and our group is a way for autistic adults to socialise, meet other autistic people and support and encourage each other.
Registering for a place is not essential but if you do book a ticket through Eventbrite, it will help give us an idea of how many people will be coming.
