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.

Understanding the Link: Autism & Social Anxiety

Autism & Social Anxiety

Many autistic individuals can have heightened perspectives to some things, from loud chatter to bright lights, that can amplify feelings of social anxiety. In this whirlwind of overwhelming sensations, understanding and accommodating these sensory challenges can be crucial for fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment. In this blog, the team at Unique Peace Counselling will explore how autistic individuals can be extra sensitive to social experiences and offer some tips for navigating social spaces.

Recognizing ADHD Traits in Women

Recognizing ADHD Traits in Women

Although Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be assessed in people of all ages and genders, it can present differently in female-identified persons. Men and women may experience ADHD traits differently, in part due to masking (the suppression of ADHD qualities) and different societal expectations. Hence the team at Unique Peace Counselling would like you to know how to better identify ADHD traits in women. At this time, we are not qualified to provide an official assessment but can help you to understand your relationship with ADHD.
