For years, it was assumed that autism affected boys at four times the rate of girls.
New research is challenging that thinking and looking at why autism in girls, women and gender diverse people has been overlooked for so long.
Inspired by the disability rights slogan, ‘Nothing about us, without us’, a team of autistic women and non-binary people have been working with researcher Rachel to set the landscape for this research frontier.
How can research improve the lives of autistic girls, women and gender diverse? Where should we be focusing our resources?
In this episode:
Dr Rachel Grove, researcher in to autistic girls, women and gender diverse people
Tess Moodie, queer, non-binary, proud Pallawa woman and advocate in the areas of gender-based violence, disability, autism and in the LGBTQA+ community.
