WEBCAST: The Intersection Between Autism Spectrum Disorder & LGBTQIA+
The Help Group, leaders in the field of nonpublic special education, and Kaleidoscope, a new program by The Help Group that supports neurodivergent and neurotypical LGBTQIA+/Questioning youth, young adults and their families in building healthy relationships, higher resiliency, and critically needed life skills, hosted a dedicated webcast covering a unique topic! We discussed the intersection between Autism Spectrum Disorder and LGBTQIA+, covering the following areas:
- Overview of language/terminology
- What the data tells us about the high degree of intersectionality between ASD and LGBTQIA identities
- What does it mean to be a dual minority
- How to create safe spaces for LGBTQIA autistic folks
