Women and girls with ASD. A much misunderstood group. (6th Oct 06 11:05:32 GMT)
Morning everyone. I'm a clinical psychologist working with adults with Asperger's Syndrome, who is starting to really think there is a hidden, largely invisible population of females with ASDs who end up misdiagnosed & misunderstood by services & society in general. For me, DSM/ICD describe a male stereotype which bears little relation to the people I see every day in my clinics - especially the women. does anyone else feel this way, or am I finally losing it?
