Event description

Description

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

  • Bullying

  • Menstruation and dating

NDIS funding can be used to access these workshops if approved by an NDIA planner. In order to use NDIS funding to access these workshops you must have ‘Improved Daily Living Skills’ OR 'CB Daily Living' listed as a support item within your child’s NDIS plan, have a budget allocated to this line, and the plan does not expire prior to the session.

Please forward a full copy of your plan, if not managed by Autism SA, to aking@autismsa.org.au. For any further questions on this process, please contact Amanda King on 8462 0664.
