This week, I’m talking to Nigel Rising, founder of Autistic Women Emerging and organizer of the upcoming conference AutisticaPalooza!

We had a great conversation about isolation as late-identified autistic women, and of course I asked a lot of questions about the upcoming conference. I’ll be there presenting two sessions, on a couple of the panels, and just wandering around chatting with folks, so let me know if you plan to attend!

Tickets are discounted through the end of the month. Learn more:

Their approach is two-fold: to organize events that create a sense of belonging among Autistic women and help us improve our quality of life, and to provide Autism-specific and Autistic lived-experience training and education to the mental health providers that serve them.
