Girls + autism

As I said in a previous posted entitled Girls, Women and Autism, ever since I received a comment from a young lady whose sister is autistic, I’ve felt it’s important to cover girls and autism any time I get a chance.

I also know I’ve mentioned this film at least once before and so when I read this article, which is actually an interview with the screenwriter of the film, I felt it was definitely worth talking about again.

The article is entitled “What Inspired the Film ‘Please Stand By’ About a Woman with Autism” by Robert Watkins over at The Mighty. There’s also a link at the end of the article to the full interview.

Girls, women and autism

Anytime I come across an article on girls and autism, I usually try and post it because I know it’s an under reported and research topic. So tonight I’m posting this article I found entitled “Don’t Overlook Autistic Girls” by Sally J. Pla over at the Miami Herald.

I once got a comment from a young lady on the other side of the world when I posted an article about girls and autism. I remember she really appreciated the article, so whenever I see an article on autism and girls, I always think back to her.

Boys to men

In the past few years more research has begun to be done on girls with autism and the apparent differences between the boys and girls. Now it appears there are differences even between boys and men.

This according to the article entitled “Study reveals subtle brain differences in men with autism” over at Medical Xpress and courtesy of Kings College London. So the next question undoubtedly will be, what are the differences between girls and women?
