Autism in Women and Girls: Reassessing the Landscape Conference

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventConference participation


Organised by Research Autism. The autism landscape has continued to evolve and develop. The launch of Adult Autism Strategies in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales; the development of the NICE guidelines on identification, diagnosis and management of children, young people and adults with autism; and the publication of A Future Made Together, the most comprehensive analysis of autism research and views in the UK to date, have all served to keep autism at the top of the agenda. The initial conference was also the springboard for an EU funded programme looking at the needs and quality of life of women on the autism spectrum across Europe. This project, called ‘Autism in Pink’ will complete in May 2014. Autism in women and girls: reassessing the landscape. In particular, we will be focusing on how, if at all, things have changed. Is there now better recognition? Are services more aware of and sensitive to their needs? Are outcomes in terms of education, health and wellbeing improving?
