As a “girl” with autism, the subject of girls and autism is dear to my heart.
In spite of the questions I get about girls and autism, until now, I hadn’t prepared an adequate response. I simply told people what it was like for me and gave a really general answer.
So, I decided to put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard!) and give you all a starting point to help you to navigate the issues around girls and autism.
I wanted to get you information quickly. I realize you don’t need answers today, next week, next month – you need it yesterday, last week and last month.
This post will be edited, added to, and maybe broken up into several posts in the future. For now, I think it will help you get started. Also, let me know if it helps, if you need more, etc., by commenting below.
