WORKSHOPS & COACHING GROUPS
Welcome to our new workshop:
GiftedxAutistic: What's It Like?
This is a casual and intimate online 2-hour workshop on being simultaneously gifted and autistic. Several years ago, Silver was identified as profoundly gifted and diagnosed as autistic, and has been studying twice-exceptionality ever since. Silver's gift of poetic and exact articulation about her experiences and the nuances of twice-exceptionality, giftedness, profound giftedness, autism, mental health issues, and creativity are stunning and inspiring. In this workshop, Silver will be sharing her personal experience of being profoundly gifted and severely autistic and answering your questions about what it's like to be this version of twice-exceptional. Specifically, she will be sharing and discussing:
• A brief timeline of her life before and after autism diagnosis and gifted identification.
• A brief introduction into autism, giftedness and how the different traits appear to blend in her experience, for example high sensitivity (HSP) and sensory sensitivity (SPD).
• How autism impacts her physical health and ability to self-care on a daily basis.
• How giftedness and autism impact social communication and interaction with others.
• A brief discussion into diagnosis: Yay or nay? Costs and benefits either way.
Her perspectives are based entirely on personal experience and cannot be construed as professional medical or psychological opinion or advice. However, attendees will benefit from the open discussion and tips and resources she will have to give. If you're gifted and autistic, or suspect you or your children might be - or if you're just curious - this could be a great introduction into the topic. Each session will be limited to 6 participants.
Cost: 25 USD per person.
Dates: to be chosen based on the availability of the participants
Please leave your name and email address here http://silverhuang.typeform.com/to/SSN2Ty and Silver be in touch with you shortly to confirm dates and times.

Legitimizing Your Gifted Needs
with Jennifer Harvey Sallin, Founder of InterGifted, Coach & Mentor for Highly, Exceptionally & Profoundly Gifted Adults
New session coming this summer. Let us know you're interested in joining!
Date and Cost TBD (around 50 USD).
Gifted people are often told that their standards are too high and unrealistic by others who don't understand that gifted people have uncommon needs. This leads them to deny or judge their own needs and try to live without getting them met. In this two-hour group workshop, Jen will help you look at what other people have told you are your 'unrealistic standards' and redefine them in terms of legitimate needs. Lots of discussion on how to communicate these needs will be included.
