22TRA019 Autism in Girls – Specific Supports
Our knowledge about autism in girls and women is growing week by week. In a disorder that was previously thought to affect mostly boys, girls and young women are increasingly being diagnosed. However, with different expressions of autism, how do we support these young people. In this webinar we will consider the specific needs of autistic girls and young women.

This webinar is suitable for SNAs, teachers and learning support teachers at primary and post-primary level.
