It's now widely recognised that camouflaging and masking, and profiles that diverge from traditional understandings of autism, have led to diagnostic gender bias and an under-identification of autism in some girls and women.

This straightforward, one-stop guide introduces you to the differing presentations of autism common in girls but also considers why referring to "male" and "female" autism is too simplistic. Much of the information covered can be extended to an understanding of all more internalised presentations, regardless of gender.

Describing why some autistic girls' needs are identified late - or not at all, looking at friendships and relationships, education, mental health, puberty and menstruation, this concise, easy-to-understand and informative guide helps readers to understand a distinct profile of needs.
