Overview

The majority of those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are boys and men, meaning the voices of girls on the spectrum have been practically inaudible-until now.

Asperger's and Girls provides women on the autism spectrum the opportunity to tell the world about their experiences, good and bad. Their candid reflections will provide practical and relevant information for educators and parents who come into contact with girls or women who have ASD. Leading professionals in the field provide fascinating articles that offer further insightful advice.

Key Features
  • Looks at if "Aspie Girls" are slipping under the radar undiagnosed
  • Discusses why many AS women feel like a minority within a minority
  • Includes discussions on practical solutions school systems can implement for girls, social tips for teenage girls, navigating puberty, transition to work and University, and the importance of careers.
