Understanding Adult Autism Diagnosis

Understanding your autistic assessment results: what comes next?

So you’ve gone through an autistic assessment and you’re wondering what comes next. Typically, this is the time when people become interested in understanding themselves through this new lens. Many people go through this after getting their assessment in an attempt to seek clarity and to unpack previous lived experiences to see where being autistic may have been having an impact.

The Benefits of Therapy

Therapy can hold potential benefits for those seeking help with this exploration. Not only can a therapist help by giving context to old experiences, they can also help with next steps including accessing different supports and helping you to unmask.

Additionally, a therapist can also provide tools that can assist with self-advocation in different environments so that you can hopefully get your needs met a little easier. Speaking of needs, a therapist can also help to both normalize needs that have been present all along and help you to recognize more that may have been a source of overwhelm without even recognizing it.

A Neurodivergent-Informed Therapist

A neurodivergent-informed therapist can also, in some circumstances, be a person of advocacy between other health professionals should you give consent for this to be the case.

This can potentially help ease communication stress on all parties involved and help you to get your needs met when a multidisciplinary team of professionals is required.
