Just diagnosed, now what?

Congratulations, you completed a giant step

The short answers is:

  • Take time to process and adjust to this new reality
  • Start building a positive autism identity, if you have already not done so
  • Consider discussing it with other significant people in your life
  • Research and consider very carefully whether to disclose it at work, look at our employment section.

A lot of research has demonstrated that building positive autism identity , understanding and acceptance of autistic differences and fulfilling and recognised contribution to society are key factors of autistic wellbeing and quality of life.
