Autism and Girls – Understanding and insight into the presentation of Autism in girls
What is the talk about?
For many years Autistic girls have been misunderstood and underdiagnosed but now research is catching up and the voices of Autistic girls are being heard. This is the opportunity to hear about how Autism can present in girls from someone who has an Autistic daughter and is Autistic herself.
