AANE Workshop: Learn to Talk to Your Healthcare Professional
March 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Free
Are you between the ages of 16-25? Would you like to learn how to talk to your healthcare professional?
Good communication with health care professionals is critical to receive proper care. This workshop will help individuals with an Asperger’s/Autism or similar profile identify and articulate key information they wish to communicate clearly and efficiently, which will help them explain concerns, promote dialogue, and forge good relationships with health care providers. Discussion will include sharing past experiences, examining common roadblocks to communication, and explaining current health care needs. Through practicing conversations and role-playing, participants will brainstorm ways to self-advocate and address topics such as disclosure of neurological differences, sensory sensitivities, and much more.
