"Long thought of as a primarily "male" disorder, girls with autism have long gone unidentified, unnoticed, unheard and unsupported - sometimes with devastating social and mental health consequences. As current research reveals a much more balanced male:female ratio in autism, this book provides crucial insight into girls' experiences, helping professionals to recognise, understand, support and teach girls with autism effectively. Drawing on the latest research findings, chapters consider why girls have been historically overlooked by traditional diagnostic interpretations, explore identifying behaviours which are particular to girls, and acknowledge the protective and compensating factors which can make the diagnosis of autistic girls more difficult. Chapters emphasize both the challenges and advantages of the condition and take a multidisciplinary approach to encompass contributions from autistic girls and women, their family members, from teachers, professionals and psychologists; the result is a valuable source of first-hand insights, knowledge and strategies from lived experiences and professional perspectives which will enable those living or working with girls on the autism spectrum to provide more informed and effective support to girls and their families. Giving voice to the experiences, concerns, needs and hopes of girls with autism; this much-needed text will provide researchers and professionals working with girls on the autism spectrum with essential information to help them support and teach autistic girls effectively"

The difference that being female makes to the diagnosis, life and experiences of a person with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has largely gone unresearched and unreported until recently. In this book Sarah Hendrickx has collected both academic research and personal stories about girls and women on the autism spectrum to present a picture of their feelings, thoughts and experiences at each stage of their lives. Outlining how autism presents differently and can hide itself in females and what the likely impact will be for them throughout their lifespan, the book looks at how females with ASD experience diagnosis, childhood, education, adolescence, friendships, sexuality, employment, pregnancy and parenting, and aging. It will provide invaluable guidance for the professionals who support these girls and women and it will offer women with autism a guiding light in interpreting and understanding their own life experiences through the experiences of others.
