Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Why our NeuroDiverse partners can’t affirm us
When: Monday, December 12th at 4 PM Pacific Time
It is natural for us, NeuroTypicals, to affirm each other. We smile, nod our heads, and shake hands. We also use words of affirmation easily. Simple greetings like “Hi,” or “Good morning,” are affirmations. But we can reach deeper and offer a firm hug, a knowing look, or kind words that only the other person will understand.
Certainly, NeuroDiverse people have mastered a modicum of affirmative behavior, but it is lackluster, isn’t it? Without Empathy, their comments miss the mark. They might care, but they aren’t caring.
This lack of affirmation hits us like a ton of bricks. We are so wired for giving and receiving affirmation that the lack of it from our ASD loved one is unnerving. Let’s meet to talk about how to protect our hearts from those with EmD-0.
