Autism from within
My name is Louise Egelund Jensen. I was born in 1981 and 17 years later I was diagnosed with autism (Asperger's Syndrome) after years of depression and an eating disorder.
Since 2002 I have been giving lectures about living with autism. I have 5 different lectures, as described below, all of them avaliable in English. They each last about an hour and afterwards I'm more than happy to answer questions. I make an effort to focus on strengths rather than weaknesses, and use a positive approach and humor to describe the challenges I live with every day.
Should any of those be of interest, please email me at the address at the bottom of the page.
"My Life with AS" - As the title implies, this lectures is about my life with autism, from childhood to adult life. I will be talking about sensory sensitivity, social problems, school and a positive outlook on autism.
"I am Asperger, who are you?" - Also about my life, but with primary focus being my life as it is now, as an adult, and less focus on childhood and school. I will be talking about sensory issues, friendships, special interests, quality of life and success.
"Relationships" - In this lecture I talk about the different relationships I have and have had in my life. Relationships with my parents, friends, colleagues, aquaintances among others.
"Senses" - An in-depth lecture about sensory sensitivity. I will be talking about all 7 senses and how they affect me in my everyday life, and what can be done to live with sensory issues.
"Stress from within" - Which situations are stressful and why? What do I do to lower stress and what can others do to help me when I'm stressed? These are the topics of this lecture.
