With Dr Wenn Lawson

Transitioning Together.Dr Wenn Lawson is a Psychologist, lecturer and author. Being on the autism spectrum, Wenn is passionate about the rights of those who so often cannot speak for themselves. Wenn’s latest book, Transitioning Together, written with his wife Beatrice, is the story of his transition from female to male.

Dr Wenn is currently a Teaching Fellow with Birmingham University, UK, and a sessional lecturer at Melbourne University, Australia and other universities around the globe. He resides on several boards (including the local College) and The Autism Journal Open Access and is an advisor to researchers with the CRC in Australia. He has written numerous books and papers on autism spectrum conditions; covering topics such as education, sexuality, girls and women, aging, communication and sensory differences, technology, dual diagnosis and PDA.

Dr. Wenn’s seminars are research based, but they are also practical, down to earth and applicable to all individuals, parents, professionals and others wanting to understand autism and make a difference. 

During this Masterclass, Wenn will explore autism and gender dysphoria, referencing both academic knowledge and understanding along with his own personal story and anecdotal accounts.  

Masterclass content

The session will discuss some of the research that is relating to autistic individuals living with conflicting gender and sexuality issues. This masterclass will explore:

  • understanding and recognising gender variance in autism
  • how can we tell if gender and sexuality are issues of a permanent nature or are aspects of a special interest?
  • what are the issues for the individual, and are they the result of an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
  • the best ways to educate, support and tap into resources for autistic individuals and their families.
