Healthy Relationships on the Autism Spectrum (HEARTS) is a six-session online class to support autistic adults who want to strengthen their friendships and dating relationships. HEARTS is different from other social skills classes in that it was designed collaboratively with autistic people and uses a team-teaching approach involving one autistic and one non-autistic teacher. In this webinar, we will describe why and how we developed the content of the HEARTS class, how we partnered with the organization AANE to deliver it, results of our pilot test, and why autistic/non-autistic co-teaching teams are essential for the neurodiversity-embracing approach.
