Autism can present very differently in girls than boys and many girls on the autistic spectrum go undiagnosed and unsupported with the condition. During this course, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of autism, and in particular high functioning autism in girls. You’ll consider the easy to miss signs that your female pupils may be autistic; whether and how to gain a diagnosis and consider a range of ideas for supporting your students within and beyond the classroom.

  • Understand why autistic girls often fly under the radar
  • Explore how to spot potential autism in girls and consider easy to miss signs
  • Discuss if, when and how to chase a diagnosis
  • Celebrate the positives autism brings and explore self and peer acceptance and care
  • Develop a range of strategies for improving the school experience for autistic girls
  • Consider some simple steps girls can take to support themselves
  • Explore the ‘team around the child’ and the part each person plays
