Research is showing that the incidence of girls with autism is higher than previously thought. The expression of autism may be somewhat different in girls than it is in boys.

This interactive session is an extension of the workshop offered on Tuesday April 6th. There are a limited number of spaces for parents and caregivers only who joined the previous session. We encourage everyone to actively participate and draw upon their own knowledge and experience to discuss and learn together.

  • Please bring some examples of the challenges and successes you or your child have faced as a female on the spectrum
  • Please share any resources you have found helpful

Parents/caregivers should be prepared to discuss their experiences and any further questions they have on this topic in a safe, inclusive, small group setting. 

This FREE 1-hour virtual workshop will include:

  • 45 minutes interactive session
  • 15 minutes summary & feedback

Presenters: Carlye McCloy-Brown & Chelsea Jelic
