This course is very helpful as it explains why autism in girls can be hard to spot. It also builds appreciation of how a diagnosis can help avoid some of the worst outcomes such as serious mental health issues, bullying, abuse etc. I would have liked a bit more on support strategies that work well for girls with AS.
