Women & Autism – Women’s Group

June 15, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

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.

In each Women’s Group, we provide timely information on topics that are important to autistic women. In this particular session, we’ll discuss friendships and relationships, including maintaining safety in relationships, how to recognize good and bad intentions of others, and strategies to increase understanding in relationships.

In a safe and welcoming small group setting, we’ll share information, and enjoy valuable peer connection. First timers are always welcome as each session’s topic and discussion is unique.
