Review of the Autism and Dating workshop hosted by GRASP Chicago and Chicagoland Autism Connection

Review of the Autism and Dating workshop hosted by GRASP Chicago and Chicagoland Autism Connection

I was honored that my workshop, Autism, Aspergers and Dating, was the first community event ever to take place at Project 1212,  a residential home supported by the Julie and Michael Tracy Family Foundation and Rush University Medical Center Autism Assessment, Research & Treatment Services  Center (AARTS).

The event was generously co-sponsored by GRASP Chicago and Chicagoland Autism Connection with special thanks to Jamie Specht, Kimberly Johnson-Evans and Julie Tracy for making it possible.

We covered three main topic areas:

  • How dating with autism is different from dating as a neurotypical.
  • How to turn a first date into a second date.
  • How to navigate  disagreements in a relationship.
