Addressing the gender gap in the understanding of autism, this book takes a multi-perspective examination of the key issues in education for girls with autism. This collection distills latest research and makes recommendations for a collaborative and integrated approach that enables girls on the spectrum to reach their full potential. Diagnostic procedures have traditionally been based on male norms, leading to a bias in research, as well as missed or delayed diagnosis among girls and women with autism.

There is now a growing recognition that girls with autism need to be diagnosed earlier so that appropriate support can be offered. By establishing close collaborations between girls with autism, their parents, teachers and specialist professionals, the field can move forwards in terms of providing understanding and an appropriate educational framework for success.
