Did you know that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy skills can be useful for Autistic and ADHD individuals too?
As neurodivergent individuals, we often experience different types of distress from living in a society that isn't designed for our differences. It isn't just emotional distress but also meltdowns and sensory distress that we experience too. One of the best things we can do to support ourselves is manage our needs and respond to our distress in a way that works for us.

This is where Dialectical Behaviour Therapy skills come in! Unfortunately, DBT skills aren't always accessible, straight-forward or neurodivergent friendly. That's why this workbook of DBT skills has been reframed to be neurodivergent affirming while incorporating sensory strategies, managing meltdowns, stimming and more. Written and designed by an autistic ADHDer, you can learn skills and tool using the five sections:
• Everyday Well-being
• Mindfulness
• Distress Tolerance
• Emotional Regulation
• Sensory Needs

The best part? Each section is colour coordinated with an appealing colour to keep things colourful, engaging and sensory friendly. There's a whole bunch of different tools and worksheets too!

Not sure why you might want or need this workbook? Let me help you out. In this workbook, you can find skills to support you with:
• recognising meltdown triggers
• managing meltdowns when they happen
• figuring out your sensory needs
• preventing sensory overload
• developing mindfulness strategies
• identifying your emotions
• learning ways to respond to your distress - neurodivergent style

It's also self-paced so if you're an individual, you can do it at home. If you're a professional, there's nothing stopping you from sharing this affirming workbook with a client or keeping this as a go to resource!
