Autism at-a-Glance: Autism in Females

Lizzie Andrews, Rebecca Dees and Nancy McIntyre

Autism at-a-Glance is a series of practitioner and family-friendly documents created by the Center on Secondary Education for Students with ASD (CSESA) designed for high school staff members supporting students on the autism spectrum, as well as family members of adolescents with ASD. The purpose of the Autism at-a-Glance series is to provide a current summary of topics relevant to high school students with ASD as well as practical tips and resources for school and community personnel and family members.

This Autism at-a-Glance was designed to provide information to practitioners and family members about female adolescents and young adults on the autism spectrum.
