TOPIC: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Patterns of “Aspie” Communication
WHEN: Thursday, September 17th at 1 pm Pacific Time
If you are to understand and relate and communicate with your ASD loved one, you will need to be a scientist. Once you understand their patterns, you have a better chance of connecting in their world. Their patterns are relatively simple. It’s kind of like algebra or quantitative methods. You just need the right formula.
It took me forever to break the code because I was trying to understand them from an NT perspective. Once I let go of that notion, I could more easily see the patterns they use to make sense of the world.
It’s like wandering around in a foreign country for a few days. Once you get your bearings, you can read the street signs, or a menu even when you don’t speak the language. We have to do this for our loved ones on the spectrum because they can’t do this for us.
We could talk for hours about their patterns, so let’s get started here. More to come later.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
