Autism and School
School has always been incredibly difficult for me. Even though I have a very high IQ learning was exteremely difficult for me in a 'school' environment. The cause of this is many different factors together. In my 'Autism and School' lecture I will go more into detail about all the factors that made school so difficult for me and also what kind of solutions there could have been. Solutions that were not really available for me because I didn't even know that I had autism until I was 21 years old. Before this age I could only guess what was going on with me what often left me with quite a low self esteem. But now I do know what could have helped me and I know that these things will definitely help other students with autism.
Who is this lecture for?
While this lecture is quite speciffic it is still interesting for everybody. It could be for parents who have an autistic child in school for example. But it can also be for autistic students themselfs. It can be an eye opener for them and it can give them solutions how to get through their schoolday a bit easier. But this lecture will definitely be interesting for teachers. I can help them creating a teaching environment which will be suitable for autistic students.
