Healthy Autistic boundaries
As Autistic people, we might often get confused about who we are in the context of a world we do not understand. Constantly trying to fit in and be like everybody else, might have displaced our connection with our boundaries. Through this course, we hope to help you find that connection.

Autistic adults and teenagers
P.S: We welcome those who have self-diagnosed themselves and those who suspect they might be autistic.
