Autism and Girls – The Hidden Gender

Mar 8, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


‘Are parents and professionals missing the signs of autism in girls?’ (Kate Reynolds)

Autism is often described as the ‘exaggerated male brain’ and certainly there is prevalence in diagnosis with current National Autistic Society figures showing that only 1 in 4 diagnoses are female. Is this really an accurate picture though? Are boys really more susceptible to this condition?

In this course, we explore why autism is different for girls, the gender issues within diagnostic methods and the issues with gender bias even post diagnosis. We will look at the particular characteristics presenting within girls as well as female friendly strategies for dealing with big issues such as puberty.
