Webinar: Understanding Autism in Women and Girls

This webinar took place on Monday 22 April 2024, 12-12-45pm BST

As experts continue to develop in their understanding of autism, so too have developments been made in understanding, diagnosing, and supporting autistic women and girls.

Women and girls have too often been underdiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or diagnosed with autism much later in life, with ratios of males to females diagnosed with autism ranging from 2:1 to 16:1.

You may be wondering why experts have failed to spot autism in women and girls and how they are still searching for the true number of women and girls with autism.

This webinar explores the way autism can present for women and girls, the differences in traits, common misdiagnoses, and what to do if you think you, or someone you love, may have undiagnosed autism.
