Community Workshop: Everyday Self Advocacy Skills
Reframing Autism invites you to join Shadia Hancock for a community workshop covering practical strategies for self-advocacy across a range of contexts including education, medical and support settings, community settings etc. We will cover real world examples of ‘reasonable accommodations’ and share some scripts and tips to request them.
Shadia is the proud owner and founder of Autism Actually, and enjoys presenting and consultancy. They are currently studying Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) and Cert IV in Animal Behaviour and Training, with the long-term goal of specialising in Autism and animal-assisted therapy. Shadia was formally identified with Autism at the age of three, and Generalised Anxiety Disorder at the age of 14. In August 2023, Shadia was also formally identified with ADHD combined type. Being non-binary, they enjoy discussing the intersectionality of Autism and gender diversity. Shadia benefited from numerous early supports such as speech therapy and occupational therapy. They are very passionate about sharing information about what being Autistic is like.
