A qualified counsellor, social worker and psychologist, Wendy Lawson is well-known and respected for her writing and workshops based on her own experiences as a person with autism. Wendy prefers the term 'diffability' to disorder, and her research seeks to explore what being differently abled means in a world of neuro-diversity. Her strong personality and sense of humour make Wendy's talks and workshops hugely popular in both northern and southern hemispheres.
This DVD comprises Wendy's full 2.5-hour presentation, during which she explains the workings of the autistic mind from her own insightful and often jocular perspective. This fascinating workshop will be of great benefit to parents and professionals, as well as providing an inspirational resource for people on the spectrum themselves.

"I think we need to demonstrate to society that we are of value, just the way we are. That we don't need to change and be more like typical people to be worthwhile. Our value is in being human, and in being different."
