Event description

Description

Autism has typically been seen as a male condition but we are hearing more and more about autism in women and girls. This day will explore the life experiences of autistic women and girls.

You will hear the clinical perspective on diagnosing autism in girls and how it differs to boys and some of the latest thinking about ratios of autism in males and females. Delegates will hear the lived experiences of autistic women talking about their childhood experiences, socially and at school, and their lives now.

Our speakers will talk about their challenges in getting an autism diagnosis, and their journey to acceptance and pride in their identity as autistic women. There will be some practical tips about where to go for support and forming networks. Speakers will also talk about being autistic mothers and their insights and experiences of parenting children on the spectrum.
