Gifted Autistic Mentoring Program
The individualized mentoring program is for gifted autistic adults who aim to deepen their self-knowledge and explore their self-leadership skills as a neurodivergent individual. This program is created with and facilitated through InterGifted. It is designed to encourage gifted autistic people to innovate by applying their unique way of seeing and experiencing the world. It’s all about how the strengths and challenges of giftedness and autism provide unique opportunities for growth, expression, meaning-making and connection with yourself and others.

Gifted Autistic Women's Group
Many gifted women, after years of not understanding why or how they are functionally different from the people around them - even from other gifted people - discover that autism explains their extra differences: their hyperlogical mind, their difficulty with neuronorm social rules, their executive function or sensory overwhelm challenges, and so on. Finding out about autism for these women feels like “things suddenly coming together and making sense for the first time”. This realization often leads them to a completely new journey of self-rediscovery of their unique profiles, and how the strengths and challenges of autism provide them unique opportunities for growth, expression, meaning-making and connection with themselves and with others.
Join six of your gifted and autistic female peers for two hours online every month for six months to share, discuss and explore various themes related to life as a gifted and autistic woman - all with the aim of giving and receiving support and peer mirroring related to your life as a gifted/autistic woman, and exploring and experimenting with ways to thrive with your particular neurocognitive makeup.
The Gifted Autistic Women’s Peer Discussion Group provides an empowering and generative space for women to come together and support each other in their self-discovery journey. We cover topics such as (all from the point of view of being a gifted autistic woman):
- developing authentic and autistic-friendly self-care routines and schedules
- how you can authentically and meaningfully connect with others, given your unique neurocognitive profile
- navigating career, hobby, time-management and life-balance, given your interests, strengths and limitations
- family, parenting, and relational challenges and opportunities, given your particular relational needs and context
- the path to healing, resilience and empowerment after difficult past experiences related to your giftedness or autism
- finding meaning in the world, as your unique self with your particular gifts
