Autism In Girls
What's in this issue?
Autism is still often portrayed as a “boy thing” in the media and diagnostic criteria remains outdated. So, this month, we’re diving into what autism “looks like” in girls. Many girls on the spectrum receive late diagnosis due to masking their autistic traits; we’re therefore unpacking what masking is, and unravelling why some physicians miss diagnosing girls. In addition, we’ve included an article from a parent raising a daughter on the spectrum, and tips on how to make friends written by autistic advocate Siena Castellon. Plus, we have articles on sibling interaction, choosing a therapy dog, social skills, and so much more. If all this sounds good, dive in and enjoy the read!
