What is Autism Dialogue?
Autism Dialogue is a focussed and friendly approach to communicating together about what matters to you, whether you identify as autistic, a relation of autistic persons or work in the field of autism. With our safe conversation method and many years of experience in this area, you can personally explore your experience of autism with others, and discover what it really means to be autistic. All perspectives are held equally and we commit together to root out subtle misconceptions, assumptions and power imbalances. The process is thorough. Occasionally people might feel discomfort as our deeply-held assumptions are revealed, yet the results of doing this in a safe setting can be uplifting and even life-affirming.
During the past four years, we have shown that our unique approach to compassionate understanding and knowledge creation facilitates recovery and increases wellbeing and empowerment for autistic people and their families. At the same time it is powerful in addressing systemic issues and creating positive change for those in practice, research and in public attitudes, producing more inspired and cohesive autism-support organisations. Our approach is backed by a sound, empirical science (eg. Bohm’s Implicate Order) and we have a strong global support base.
We aim to make the world a more inclusive, friendlier and vibrant place to live, with:
- Inclusive Dialogue that incorporates the neurodiverse mindset
- Equality of voices, enabling choices & diversifying thinking
- Collective voices work to increase equality for autistic people
- Co-designing the future of autism
