Trans – Agender – Non-Binary Resources
Tips & advice for neurodivergent, autistic, gender-diverse, and trans people about finding & going to doctors — A downloadable guide prepared by the AWN Network (awnnetwork.org) and the LGBTQ Task Force (thetaskforce.org)
Research and community storytelling reveal
that autistic and trans people experience major health disparities in access to care, quality of care, and health outcomes for physical and mental health care. Many of us also experience discrimination, prejudice, and bias in doctor’s offices and hospitals, even in clinics meant to serve marginalized communities.
For autistic and trans people who haven’t had reliable access to health care, the processes of finding providers and knowing how to plan for disability-related access needs can be scary, confusing, and complicated.
The Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network and the National LGBTQ Task Force are excited to share a guide for trans autistic people called Before You Go: Know Your Rights & What to Expect at the Doctor and in the Hospital.
This guide will help our trans and autistic community members know better what to expect when going to doctors or hospitals, understand rights and responsibilities, and strategize for safety planning, effective communication, accommodations, and more.
