Online Support for Autistic Women and Girls
Women and Girls Online Support
A source of information and inspiration
Our women and girls programme is for autistic females of all ages, as well as parents, carers and professionals.
The programme provides valuable information addressing key health and wellbeing challenges, as well as providing practical advice on a range of issues.
To commemorate the launch of the women and girls programme, we created a special video which saw 11 women come together to form a choir for the day. The song, ‘Something Inside So Strong’, was chosen as it seemed to capture the sentiment and spirit of the many stories we have heard from women during the life of the project. We really hope you enjoy it!
The development of the women and girls programme was funded by the Scottish Government.
"So many parents of girls and women on the autism spectrum are seeking help, advice and resources and, up until now, these have been lacking. This new programme builds on the real lives of females in the autism community who have shared their experiences and knowledge which is now accessible to help girls and women who live with the condition as well as their families and carers."
