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 will build off of previous sessions and discussions, continuing to provide timely information regarding topics that are important to autistic women. In this particular session, we’ll highlight key resources for Autistic women in Alberta and throughout the world, including many excellent resources from the UK.
In a safe and welcoming small group setting, we’ll discuss these and more, sharing information, and enjoying valuable peer connection. First timers are always welcome as each session’s topics and discussion is unique.
