About the event

Women & Girls Conference - Edinburgh

Autism is an overwhelmingly male diagnosis – it has even been described as the extreme male brain. Is this why so few diagnoses relate to women and girls? Or is it that they’re better than their male counterparts at adapting to social situations, or at hiding their differences?

At this conference, we will bring together experts in this field – researchers, practitioners, and autistic women themselves – to explore these issues, share their most recent findings, and give tips on the latest best practice.
