By now you may have heard of micro-aggressions, which describe much of what we experience in our lives with “Aspies.” Micro-aggressions are those subtle messages that deny your reality and denigrate your status with your ASD partner or family member. But not all subtleties or micro-behaviors are aggression are they?

I call this other category “Micro-Hits” because they still throw us off balance. When your ASD loved ones shut you up with a comment like, “You don’t know that!” that’s a micro-hit. It’s confusing since you may have been stating your opinion — which you are entitled to by the way — but now you have to explain why you said what you said.

Isn’t it OK to chat, to offer a conjecture, to suggest another possibility, without having to prove your point? We get this. “Aspies” don’t. Not aggression exactly, but micro-hits still confuse and derail us. Time to learn how to stay on the track with a snappy comeback, instead of to feel dazed and confused as your “Aspie” walks out of the room.

The instructions for the Zoom call will be emailed to participants during the morning of the event. The fee is $18.95. Please check your Meetup settings to make sure you are able to receive emails.

If you have any issues or you haven’t received your email, please contact Kathleen, Dr. Kathy’s assistant, at [email protected]

The event is finished.
