Autism and Girls by Prof Barry Carpenter
This event will take place between 9:30am and 3:30pm on 05/06/2019.
GIRLS WITH AUTISM; FLYING UNDER THE RADAR
Barry has led the National Forum on Autism in Girls which has pioneered the current discussion around this vulnerable group of girls, through a debate in the House of Lords, and a National Conference - ‘The Big Shout’. He is currently working on a book on this topic, (with Professor Francesca Happe and Jo Egerton).
He will outline the issues arising, and the initiatives being taken to address these needs, with particular reference to the insights of Girls with ASC themselves.
