Autism psychoeducation session
Kirk is a Learning Disability Nurse, who qualified in 1995. He works mainly with children and has a particular interest in autism, as he and his two children are diagnosed autistic. More recently Kirk became involved in Swindon Community CAMHS neurodevelopmental pathway and has developed a post-diagnosis psychoeducation session based on his own research, information from autistic advocates and feedback from the children and families he works with. Like the majority of autistic adults, he prefers identity-first language, but doesn’t insist on it.
