A day of tackling “admin work” means I have to retrieve the right things from my working memory and access all the background information relevant to make that tiny decision, like what to write in an email, what time to suggest, or to say yes or no to a request. Then, I need to switch as quickly as possible between these tasks. Of course, this takes energy, but what takes the most energy is task switching.
Do We Make Enough Time for Meaningful Social Interactions?
We are constantly reminded about the value of time, but what about the importance of connection and good relationships? Imagine the difference it would make if we prioritise and invest our time into developing more meaningful social interactions to form deeper relationships.
Welcome to Autism From The Inside, where we provide a safe and inclusive space for the autism community to connect, learn and grow.
Our vision is for autistic people to have the confidence to live an authentic life with a strong sense of identity, inclusion, belonging, and social connection.
Founded by Paul Micallef, who discovered he was autistic at age 30, we offer a range of courses, events and coaching services for autistic adults and children, parents, educators, and the wider community.
We tailor our programs to meet the diverse needs and interests of our community. Whether you want to learn more about autism, develop new skills or connect with like-minded individuals, we've got you covered.
We also create educational neuro-affirming content and facilitate a private membership community to share a lived experience perspective on the joys and challenges experienced by autistic children and adults, as well as the people who support them.
