Part 3: Comfort As A Form of Expression

Part 3 of this course explores the unique ways of thinking and expressing that individuals with autism may need to develop to cope with the challenges that come with their neurological differences. The emotional responses of individuals with autism may be highly unregulated due to these neurological differences, which can make it overwhelming for some individuals with autism to constantly experience the level of frustration they feel at their most stressed-out moments. This is why individuals with autism may need to develop unique ways of thinking and expressing themselves to cope with these challenges. The course will provide strategies and techniques for individuals with autism to develop their own ways of thinking and expressing themselves, such as through art, music, or other forms of self-expression. Additionally, the course will discuss how therapy and counseling can be beneficial in helping individuals with autism to express themselves and cope with their unique challenges. It will also provide guidance on how to support the self-expression of individuals with autism and how to create an environment that fosters self-expression. The course will also provide suggestions for further reading and resources that can help individuals and their caregivers better understand and support the unique ways of thinking and expressing of individuals with autism.
