About the event
Are you Neurodiverse?
There’s a new facilitated self-help group for independent adults in Guildford.
It’ll help to improve your life and outlook, by sharing experiences and knowledge, learning coping strategies, and engaging with the local community for the improvement of your inclusion.
Arrive from 6.15pm for 6.30pm start.
Main Topic: What do we expect, want, need for a community to be autism friendly?
NB: The changes will actually benefit a much broader spectrum of the populace - we're just the vanguard for a better future.

Phillip only discovered that he had an autism spectrum condition in middle-age, and has spent the last nine years catching up on all the little and big things that make life different and difficult. He receives autism coaching in one-to-one sessions, and has a strong ethos of paying-it-forward to help others. His work history is varied, but mostly technical, with very good computer skills, and a large stock of experience and knowledge. Now working part-time, he’s offering a helping hand as a Talented Amateur By Experience, not being willing to claim that he is an Expert.
Nina is one of the Solar Sisters and very keen to help support Phillip in his quest to provide a social support group for the neurodiverse. Nina will be the vibe monitor at the events, making sure the environment is pleasant for all those attending, as well as keeping track of the time and making sure things run smoothly.
