Reviews

‘This book is a practical and valuable addition to the literature on the female experience of autism. With both clinical approaches and the unique and insightful voices of young autistic women, it should be on every clinician’s bookshelf.’
– Sarah Hendrickx, Autism Consultant, author and autistic adult

‘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
