‘There are many ways in which a girl or woman may covertly express her Autism Spectrum Condition, and many ways in which she and her family need understanding and support. This practical, succinct and wise guide for clinicians provides advice on how to identify the female presentation of ASC, as well as how to adapt conventional individual and family therapy to accommodate the abilities and experiences of girls and women.’
– Tony Attwood, clinical psychologist and author
