Autistic Girls Network is an organisation working to support, educate, and bring change.
We believe girls are being let down by the current system operating in the UK. Whether it’s protracted diagnosis, misdiagnosis or total lack of suitable provision, the system needs to be more reflective of female Autism on every level.
Currently the assessment tools used to screen for Autistic Spectrum Condition are male- centric: we want tools put in place that reflect multiple presentations, so no child’s need goes unrecognised or unsupported.
What we are aiming to achieve is recognition from the professionals, whether medical or educational.
So please join us and together we can shine a light on our wonderfully brave, Autistic girls and make people recognise and see what we do every day.
