Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Note Long thought of as a primarily "male" disorder, girls with autism have long gone unidentified, unnoticed, unheard and unsupported - sometimes with devastating social and mental health consequences. As current research reveals a much more balanced male:female ratio in autism, this book provides crucial insight into girls' experiences, helping professionals to recognise, understand, support and teach girls with autism effectively. Drawing on the latest research findings, chapters consider why girls have been historically overlooked by traditional diagnostic interpretations, explore identifying behaviours which are particular to girls, and acknowledge the protective and compensating factors which can make the diagnosis of autistic girls more difficult.
