In my work as an educational professional and autism coach, I often see youths and young adults with autism around me who cannot keep up with the expectations of the environment. Autistics whose talents are visible but not understood or deployed. This decreases self-confidence and also their quality of life. Due to the downwards spiral that then arises, developing skills becomes more difficult.
My talents lie in discovering other people’s talents. I do this by analyzing, listening, asking questions, and playing. As an autism coach my keywords are positivity, trust & authenticity. All three are necessary to support a person’s personal development. Everyone learns and develops differently, and with positivity comes trust, and when there is trust someone feels safe enough to discover their own authenticity and thus develop talent.
