Autism and Girls


Date - 09/06/2022
Time - 7:00pm-9:00pm

Swalecliffe Community Primary School

Amanda Cook


What is the talk about?

Girls with an autistic profile are too frequently overlooked as shy, highly strung or odd. They present late for consideration of a diagnosis and are too often missed altogether.
This presentation explores these issues and others specific to being female and autistic. Further it considers the rising voice of autistic females advocating for change.
