Embracing Neurodiversity: Assessing Autism

First and foremost, pursuing an autism assessment is a personal choice. You have the autonomy to decide whether or not to proceed with an assessment, and it’s not obligatory. Embracing the philosophy of neurodiversity means acknowledging that an autism diagnosis isn’t a mere “label” but a unique aspect of your identity. Seeking an assessment can help you better understand yourself (or someone you know well), empowering you to advocate for your individual needs and strengths.
