Surviving Autistic Burnout

January 24, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm $10 – $25

This session will discuss what autistic burnout is, how to recognize it, and what common causes are. After you understand burnout, you’ll get some hacks that will help you survive burnout plus narratives and resources around asking for help and support. This isn’t your guide on solving burn-out, it’s your guide to recognizing, taking care of and being kinder to yourself when you’re burnt out. This is a class for autistics, caregivers, educators and professionals who are surviving burnout.
