Autism in women

Its OK to be different!

It used to be thought that autism affects boys:girls 5:1, but now it is thought it may well be 1:1 As pointed out in the article, girls hide it better and there possibly isn’t the same focus on getting a diagnosis as there is with boys. The girl is just seen as a “bit awkward”, a “princess” or attention seeking.

All that is needed is understanding and tolerance!
