Age of menarche in females with autism spectrum conditions



Asperger�s Syndrome In Women: A Different Set Of Challenges?
http://www.autismtoday.com/articles/Aspergers_in_Women.htm
Are there behaviors that are seen in girls with Asperger's, but not in boys, that we haven't yet identified as part of the profile� or certain gender-related behavior that might fool us into ruling out the diagnosis?
Catherine Faherty



Autism Spectrum And Attention Deficit Disorders In Girls: Some Neuropsychological Aspects
http://link.springerny.com/link/service/journals/00787/papers/0009003/00090180.pdf
Clinic girls showed more extensive deficits both with respect to EF and theory of mind in spite of showing no more dramatic surface symptoms than clinic boys.
Girls also showed a tendency to greater impairments on the Freedom from Distractibility factor
A.
Nyden, Hjelmquist, Gillberg



Autistic woman who speaks through poetry
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/168288.stm
She can hardly communicate, but about 12 years ago she was shown some poems by a friend - and suddenly began writing verse of her own. Their structure and depth amazed the doctors looking after her and impressed English academics.

British Broadcasting Corporation


Equal opportunities for women with disabilities?
http://pre20031103.stm.fi/english/presidency/independ/backgr/iglesias.htm
Studies done on specific groups (autistic women, for example) show that they are more likely to remain in institutions for longer periods of time than men.

Marita Iglesias


Female Asperger Syndrome
http://www.as-if.org.uk/female.htm
I think it is more difficult for women to survive outside of neurotypical culture than it is males, and therefore they are more likely to be forced into adapting to it no matter how difficult or uncomfortable.

Suz


Girl with a boy's brain

Kiriana Cowansage can run complex neuroscience experiments and sketch beautiful portraits. She melts at the sight of an animal, but she balks at the concept of love. Such paradoxes define women with Asperger's syndrome.

Psychology Today


Girls with disorder 'overlooked'
http://news.scotsman.com/uk.cfm?id=323422006
Thousands of girls who suffer from a recognised medical condition are going untreated and branded as problem children because teachers and health experts are failing to spot their symptoms. Child psychologist Dr Svenny Kopp, a leading expert in the field of developmental disorders in children, has said that a lack of awareness of the prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among girls is damaging the lives of an untold number of young people.

Scotsman


Girls With Social Deficits And Learning Problems: Autism, Atypical Asperger Syndrome Or A Variant Of These Conditions
http://www.maapservices.org/MAAP_Sub_Find_It_-_Publications_Kopp_and_Gillberg_Article.htm
Girls with core autism deficits, similar or indeed identical to those seen in boys, may not have quite the same behavioural phenotype as the boys. The whole autism behavioural phenotype may � unwittingly � have become copied from typical male cases.

Svenny Kopp, Christopher Gillberg


Girls, Boys and Autism
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3069769/http://autism-biomed.org/boys-girls-autism.htm
By Baron-Cohen's account, autism is just an exaggerated version of the male profile�an extreme fondness for rule-based systems, coupled with an inability to intuit people's feelings and intentions.

Geoffrey Cowley



Mandy's Farm
http://mandysfarm.org/
Mandy's Special Farm offers highest quality, long term, 24-hour care for a maximum six women with autism, to help these women achieve their greatest self-sufficiency, within a caring, structured, positive, purposeful, encouraging home-like atmosphere.

Moggy Mania


http://sonic.net/mustang/moggy/Blog by a woman with high-functioning autism, VATER association, a powerful love for cats, and a sometimes-overboard belief in disability advocacy.

Links to homepages of families living with Rett Syndrome


Pattern Of Abilities And Development Of Girls With Asperger�s Syndrome
http://www. faaas. org/articles4.html
Many girls with Asperger's Syndrome have the same profile of abilities as boys but a subtler or less severe expression of the characteristics.

Tony Attwood


Recognition and Management of Symptoms Associated with the Menstrual Cycle in Autistic Women
http://www.autismo.com/scripts/articulo/smuestra.idc?n=9A
PMS and other menstruation-related disorders can affect all women, but the symptoms are more difficult to interpret in women with autism, particularly those who have difficulty communicating their discomfort.

Margaret Kyrkou


Sexual Differences in Pervasive Developmental Disorders
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/431135_print
Girls with PDD tend to have slightly lower IQs, demonstrate less proficiency in verbal and visual-spatial skills, and have a higher rate of abnormal EEGs and other indices of brain damage than boys.

Tristram Smith





Survival Strategies of a Family on the Asperger's Spectrum
http://www.aane.org/newsletter/news_14.html#survival
Usually with Asperger's, the boys get all the attention. However, one in five people with AS are women. My daughter and I are two of them.

Susan Shanfield


Women From Another Planet? Our Lives In The Universe Of Autism
http://womenfromanotherplanet.com/Dedicated to Women in the universe of autism everywhere: officially diagnosed or self-diagnosed, living independently or with supports, low or high functioning, aware of their AS or still searching for their truth.
