It's been slowly dawning on my eldest, me and her care providers, that some HFA may be at play in her constellation of issues. 

 

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for books, websites etc, particularly addressing young women with autism ?

 

I'd also be really interested if anyone has suggestions re info about gender discomfort in girls with autism

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

PS She doesn't have a diagnosis yet.

You mean discomfort with her own gender (gender dysphoria) or discomfort with people of the opposite or a particular gender?

I'm no expert at all but I've heard Tony Attwoods stuff recommended before.
