Autism: the lost girls

Friday, September 13 • 12:00 - 13:00

More than 1 in 100 people are on the autistic spectrum – around 700,000 people in the UK.

They commonly find social communication and interaction with others extremely difficult, often resulting in isolation and anxiety. Autism is typically characterised as a male disorder, but recent findings suggest there may be many unrecognised females on the spectrum.

Without diagnosis many women are left without the appropriate support, as well as being missed from key research programmes.

Hannah Belcher, Karen Leneh Buckle, Will Mandy and Hannah Hayward discuss how these women are ‘flying under the radar’ and what we can do about it.
