Barb and Nelle’s dynamic Gympie workshop series focuses on gender differences between boys and men in comparison to the often overlooked girls and women, who mask their condition.
Taking a deeper look, Barb and Nelle unravel the complexities of gender and identity, exploring how individuals on the autism spectrum often feel disconnected from the usual stereotypes of men and women.
This workshop will also explore non-binary, transgender, gay, bi and lesbian representations.
A not to be missed event giving personal insights from both the autistic and parent / educator perspectives.
This event is vital for anyone wanting to learn more about themselves, a loved one or to gain a wider understanding of Autism across the gender spectrum.
