"Autism, Girls and Keeping it All Inside" Q & A sessions for parents
2 hour session with a group of parents facilitated by school.
How to spot signs, route to diagnosis and generalised support strategies
Girls are diagnosed considerably later than boys on average (some research in Wales suggests 6 years later) and often not until secondary school, when everything changes and the young person’s coping and masking strategies no longer work. It’s part of Autistic Girls Network’s mission as a charity to campaign for greater understanding of how autism presents internally, which tends to be how autism commonly presents in girls (and if it doesn’t, they have probably been diagnosed much younger).

“I just wanted to extend our thanks for the workshops and training you are providing. We have had some very positive feedback from the students and believe that it is extremely useful to them.”
“The wealth of information you’ve provided on the difference in presentation in girls and women has been really helpful for me processing the ‘surprise’ adult diagnosis.”
“Thank you so much for this input today. It’s been one of the most helpful and relevant webinars I’ve attended.”
“We came to your amazing workshop, where I realised that not only my 3 year old daughter is autistic (assessment this month, but I’m pretty sure), but also my 6 year old daughter may be too, and also myself. I wondered to myself for a while, quietly, but so many things ticked boxes for me. My mind was blown!”
“Such a helpful insight/summary into how autism presents in girls and women and why we fly under the radar. We need more #autismacceptance and understanding and action.”
“I have learned nearly everything I know about autism in girls from Autistic Girls Network over the past two years. It has been a lifeline for us and has helped us make sense of some of the best decisions we’ve ever made for our newly diagnosed teenage daughter. I don’t know how I’ve have managed without it.”
“Autistic Girls Network is an online lifeline on a human scale for myself, my two autistic teens and our whole family, I don’t know where we would have been without it.”
