Course description

New Bridge Group MAT and everyonelearning@ are proud to welcome Professor Barry Carpenter, CBE, OBE, Phd to share his knowledge in hosting an afternoon session entitled "Autism and Girls: New Voices - New Perspectives." Please book through the BlueSky portal or alternatively contact: everyonelearning@newbridgegroup.org or Anna Wychrij - 0161 883 2401 ext 1008 Girls with autism are often overlooked for support because their identifying behaviours can be different to that of boys. Without a diagnosis, girls on the autism spectrum can struggle with stress, leading to mental health issues, problem behaviours, school refusal or other outcomes which impact on their quality of life. Traditionally, professionals have worked to a 1 girl to 4 boys ratio. However, through emerging research, evidence has shown that the diagnostic instruments used are 'blunt', male orientated, and do not adequately illuminate the female profile of Autism. Collaborative work across a range of disciplines, (education, psychology, neuroscience etc) with families, and with girls and women with Autism has captured new information which has strengthened the support and interventions we are now able to offer to girls with Autism.
