I agree Carole Jean Whittington. Both of these fabulous ladies have helped me to understand my teenager and I have passed on a lot of the wisdom at work. The best advice that I see time and time again is: “Ask all of your team members what they need in order to feel accepted, safe and can thrive. Listen to their answers.” It’s also important to remember that people should not have to disclose that they are autistic to be treated as a respected and cherished individual. But read Jaime A. Heidel and Jessica Michaels too. Lots of insight.
