Writing, writing, writing… training and webinars and videos (PART 1)

For those of you who have not heard from me in a while, I have been quite busy since becoming a paid Autism Ambassador.  Stepping into a more senior role of education involving writing articles, training, presenting and running webinars, seminars and courses is an important way of getting my strengths-based message out there. I am also an invited professional by the International Pediatric and Adolescent ROGD Working Group, working together on a new phenomenon within Autism, but not exclusive to it. As a part of my new roles, I am writing articles, books, doing webinars and courses and live coaching’s. I have written quite a few articles and delivered webinars as part of this new role.  I’m proud to be working with both of these large organizations and will be moving into a more senior role as an educator and author and reducing my clinical work.  As mental health changes move to a more online and app-friendly world, so will my work.
One-on-one consultations are still available via Skype or Zoom for an hourly rate. Please email us at aspiengirl@gmail.com
My more recent work is as follows:

Summer 2019 International School Magazine: ‘Pupils with autism are twice as likely to be bullied – what can teachers do?’ I’ve included a link to the digital edition below. My article is on pages 25 to 26:  See photos below or Click this link.

  1. Tania, I need help. My family thinks that I am unreasonable and delusional going down these “rabbit holes”. But it explains everything.
    It’s the first time I’ve felt understood.

  2. Wow, I’ve never felt so seen and understood my whole life. Thank you for your content. I have struggled my whole life to “live up to my potential” but I’ve also realized I cannot do that within normal society standards. I’ve always felt like I wanted “more” from both school and work, but I couldn’t express this feeling. I just feel like I never fit in anywhere. I know I have an incredible problem solving brain and I can figure out most tangible things. I feel a deep connection with the world and how it operates but I don’t think I’ll be of any use because I have too much anxiety surrounding social situations, especially with people who are in a higher class. I don’t understand them. However, I feel like proper diagnosis is useless because I don’t want an excuse to be who I am. I wish people were more informed on these behaviors and their origin. I’m exhausted from pretending to be something I’m not. The true friends I have since a very young age have remained friends with me because they get me at some level I guess. I do have a deep sense that I’m worthy in this world and that’s why I won’t kill myself. It’s just so damn hard to form relationships with people when I don’t know how to always respond appropriately to what they say.

    I feel like I’m always wrong sometimes and it sucks.
