  • Description

    Highly structured and visual, the workbook is broken down into key sections such as 'Interests and focus', 'Masking', 'Emotions and energy levels' and 'My autistic identity statement' to create a personal passport and to develop a deeper understanding of what autism means to the young person as an individual. Content has been shaped by autistic advisors and contributors, with first-hand experiences of young people woven throughout. The workbook aims to encourage and build:

    • An understanding of what autism is
    • An understanding of what autism means to them (their autistic identity)
    • A positive sense of self
    • An acknowledgement of things that may be trickier
    • A pride in being autistic.

    Having a positive understanding of your autistic identity is an indicator of higher self-esteem and wellbeing as an adult. This workbook supports the development of this and will be valuable for autistic children and young people aged 10+ and the adults working with them. It is designed to be used alongside the accompanying guide for most effective use, which provides further support for the lead adult and a platform for initiating important conversations.
