Why Focus on Women and Girls with ASD?
ACT’s 2018 Focus on Research Conference provided two days of fascinating insights into the complexities of identifying and treating women and girls with autism. Researchers are increasingly recognizing that autism affects women and girls differently than males. Delays in diagnosis are common, reducing access to services, with implications for long-term mental health and employment prospects.
These presentations feature recent research, with a focus on the experience and perspectives of women and girls with autism.
Presentations will be released weekly in January and February 2019. Visit this page for new releases or visit Autism Videos at ACT for more videos.
