NAS presentation: Females on the autistic spectrum
Chitra Sethia Autism Centre,
The Gatehouse, Fulbourn Road, Cambridge
Wednesday 18 November, 19.30h- 20.30h
Doors open: 19.00h
Autism is a condition that affects more boys than girls. Why this is the case is an important subject of research. But it is becoming increasingly clear that girls and women with autism are not well recognised as having autism and may be misdiagnosed with other conditions. One of the reasons for this is that the main characteristics that are used to diagnose autism are based on how boys present with autism. Girls seem to fit in better socially, and their special interests may be more mainstream than those of boys with autism, such as television programs, dolls or pop groups. However, girls with autism struggle with the same things as boys do, and a correct diagnosis is essential for them to get the support they need.
Hannah Belcher is a PhD student at Anglia Ruskin University and is doing research into girls and women with autism. She, like many females with autism, got her diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome when she was an adult. With her research she hopes to increase the knowledge of the female characteristics of autism, which may contribute to better diagnostic tools that can be used with girls and women suspected of autism.
Ms Belcher will give a presentation about females on the autistic spectrum. There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation.
All are welcome.
