Receiving an Autism Diagnosis Later In Life: a self-advocate perspective
Rebekah Kintzinger | AIDE Canada
Getting an autism test, and being diagnosed as autistic when you are an adult can be an intense experience. This toolkit was created to support those experiencing this exciting, but sometimes emotional, transition to self-acceptance. It provides some helpful information and lived experience with the hope that it will be useful to those beginning this journey. The primary author of this toolkit, Rebekah Kitzinger, was diagnosed as an adult. She created this toolkit to share her experiences and the lessons she has learned since receiving her diagnosis.
