Actions and Detail Panel
Supporting Girls on the Autism Spectrum
Mon. 15 May 2017, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm ACST
Girls often present with a unique profile from that of their male peer and are four times less likely to be diagnosed on the autism spectrum than boys.
It is essential to recognise how different girls are to boys typically and ensure that when we look at the unique needs of girls on the spectrum we also ensure we recognise that they are girls first and foremost. This session looks at a range of topics including-
Difficulties in making a diagnosis
Special interests and obsessions
Social and communication skills
Developing friendship skills
Internal anxiety and depression
Using their strengths to build self esteem
Menstruation and dating
