Ep. 10: Disclosing an Autism Diagnosis to A Child
In today’s episode of the Autism Empowerment Podcast, we will be starting a three-part series on Autism Diagnosis Disclosure. Topics in this series include disclosure of the diagnosis from parents to their children, from parents to family, teachers and professional providers, from youth to peers, and from autistic adults to others. In Part 1, which will be today’s show, we share and discuss Disclosing an Autism Diagnosis to A Child. We’ll be talking about why it is important for a child to have information to better understand themselves. We’ll cover common disclosure fears. We’ll cover what might happen if a child is not told and we’ll give suggestions on what, when, and how to tell.
