Discussed in this episode
Girls with ASD are often undiagnosed, because original diagnostic criteria have a boy bias. The criteria were created by actually examining mainly boys, and the girls can be very different. I think we all know ‘neuro-typical’ boys and girls are very different in their social, communication and behaviour. There are many characteristics that are very similar to boys with ASD but I thought I would list the main differences to girls with ASD.
In this episode I discuss
✅ Ways girls with autism differ from boys with autism
✅ Tips for anxiety
✅ Tips for girls with autism to maintain friendships and create positive peer relationships
✅ The best book to teach social skills when working with girls with autism
