Welcome to the Late Diagnosis Group Resource Page.
My name is Hyan. I'm the Post-Diagnosis Coordinator here at Number 6 The One-Stop Autism Shop.
As part of a multidisciplinary team that supports autistic adults,
I look after people diagnosed late in life to come to terms with their diagnosis.
In other words, I teach autistics about autism and how to self-manage.
Keeping groups to about 5 people per session,
LDG is designed to give you information and tools
to begin your journal as a newly-diagnosed individual.
The sessions are calm, fun, relevant, and illuminating.
I understand coming to a strange place is daunting.
I know learning about something as delicate and private as autism can be scary.
However, I don't expect you to talk; I don't expect you to do anything.
How much or how little you participate is entirely up to you.
You control the process.
If you haven't attended the sessions before,
this resource page is a glimpse of things to come.
Each link on the right takes you to resource materials specific for that session.
Feel free to browse.
You've attended the group and want access to materials? Great.
You'll find research papers, statistics, and images and a tons more
stuff that extends beyond the eight weeks sessions.
And oh, one last thing. I'm autistic.
In this short greet-and-meet that lasts about half an hour, we cover the highs and lows of the diagnosis process.
Debunking myths surrounding autism, we look at the neurobiological roots of autism, it's engine—the brain!
