Girls and Autism
"We're failing girls at the moment. We are doing many thousands of them a great disservice. They are either not being picked up in the first place, but if they ask for help they are being turned away. Even if they are referred for diagnosis, they are commonly rejected." Dr Judith Gould.
Come and learn from Emma Turver our specialist teacher and mother of an autistic daughter, who will focus on the stories of autistic girls and women. This half day course will equip you to understand girls and autism better.
Emma will talk about her experiences identifying and supporting autistic girls in schools and what we need to be aware of. It is true that many girls present differently to the typically ‘male’ presentation of autism. We will look at masking, mirroring, emotional regulation and mental wellbeing.
Although this course is aimed at learning about autism in girls, there will be autistic boys that share characteristics and challenges that girls do. Everyone is welcome at this course.
