Autism and Girls

by Tony Attwood Author, Temple Grandin, Ph.D Author and Anita Lesko Foreword

Autistic women and experts teamed up to write this book describing the unique challenges women on the autism spectrum face, and to offer advice for growing into adulthood. Fewer girls than boys are diagnosed with autism as children, but that doesn't mean it's less prevalent among girls. Topics and perspectives include diagnosis, navigating the neurotypical social world, the importance of the right career, navigating relationships, and more.
