This workshop will look at how to spot the signs of autism in girls, the impact of masking and how to support them.
Autism tends to be identified at a much lower rate in females, despite recent studies suggesting a 2.1 boy/girl ratio.
Delivered by Fostering Attainment and Achievement project workers, this session will look at how to spot the signs of autism in girls, exploring the role and implications of masking for autistic girls and how to support them. Masking is a trait associated with autistic people, where they mimic neurotypical behaviours in social settings.
This workshop will aim to examine the impact of masking and explore why it’s particularly prevalent in autistic girls.
