CANCELLED - Girls on the Autistic Spectrum
- This course aims to help staff in schools to identify girls who display characteristics of autism spectrum disorder and offer strategies to develop their independence and reduce their vulnerability.
Are parents and professionals missing the signs of autism in girls?
Women and girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder often present with a unique set of characteristics that can make diagnosing their autism difficult. It seems that girls on the autistic spectrum may be less noticeable than boys because they are less disruptive and have an ability to mimic behaviours. However, they lack social understanding and any deep knowledge of language.
