CANCELLED THIS WEEK – Women & Autism: An Exploration Session designed especially for women
March 30, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
CANCELLED – Due to unexpected circumstances this week’s Women & Autism session is cancelled. Please refer to our Events Calendar for next dates.
We know that historically and still today, autistic women continue to be under- and mis-diagnosed. While it was originally thought the ratio of autistic males to females was 4:1, research now tells us that number is actually closer to 2:1. Many women do not receive a diagnosis well into adulthood because the stereotypes associated with autism simply don’t fit females.
Building off of our first Exploration Session for women, we will continue to provide timely information regarding topics that are important to autistic women. In a safe and welcoming small group setting, we’ll discuss these and more, sharing information, and enjoying valuable peer connection.
*Please note: All are welcome no matter how you identify, however, please be aware that information and resources provided are based on female assigned at birth. All gender expressions are welcome.
If you have any questions about this session, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 403 210-5000.
