Even HowStuffWorks knows that Autistic women are going undiagnosed.
The male diagnosis structure is not fair to women and “high functioning” levil 1 or Asperger’s Aspies.
Autistic women are often told they “cannot be Autistic” because they have learned to hide their pain.
I take no credit for the video below but the fact that a big website is mentioning this issue is a bit of a victory in my eyes.
Autism is NOT a boy thing.
See the video on HowStuffWorks.
Stuff Mom Never Told You – HowStuffWorks – has another great video here.
