Recovering From Autistic Burnout

June 15, 2023, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Recovering from Autistic Burnout, Autism, Neurodiversity, presentation

Autistic people often experience chronic anxiety from the compounding life stressors they face. The amount of effort required to mask, to meet other’s unrealistic expectations without adequate support, and even to simply get through the day in a neurotypical world can lead to autistic burnout.

While many people experience burnout, autistic burnout is debilitating and is more than sheer exhaustion. Autistic burnout typically lasts for several months and can impair the individual’s ability to cope and to function independently in any part of their lives.

Unfortunately, many individuals do not get the proper support they need nor relief from the unrelenting stress they experience. It is essential for autistic people and those who support them to understand autistic burnout.

Through this presentation, participants will learn:

  • what autistic burnout is,
  • what contributes to it,
  • what can be done to prevent it from happening, and
  • how to improve outcomes.

Participants will also learn how to maximize the summer to reset their brain battery and set themselves up for success in the Fall.

About the Presenter, Dr. Caroline Buzanko (In her own words)

I am made up of many things. Psychologist. Mother. Actress. Public Speaker. Yoda of anxiety. Master of resilience. ADHD Superhero (which is why I can’t describe myself in one word). Changer of Lives. I work with children, teens, and their families to help them build better lives by maximizing confidence and forging their resilience. I also work with professionals and educators looking for training and approaches to work effectively with their clients and students. With over 25 years of experience helping children and teens with ADHD and anxiety, I know that maximizing confidence and resilience starts with fostering strong family connections, developing skills, and implementing effective, practical strategies to capitalize on strengths. My focus is on developing these skills for long-term success and positive well-being. My mission is to inspire and empower mental health professionals, educators, and families in promoting children and teens’ resilience and long-term success.
