Addressing the gender gap in the understanding of autism, this multi-perspective book explores the educational needs of girls on the autism spectrum from early years to secondary school, in both mainstream and special settings. The collection, comprising insights from autistic women and girls and educational and medical professionals makes recommendations for a collaborative and integrated approach that enables girls on the spectrum to reach their full potential. By establishing close collaborations between girls on the spectrum, their parents, teachers and specialist professionals, the field can move forwards in terms of providing understanding and an appropriate educational framework for success.

Reviews

This book is a treasure trove of ideas and insights about autistic girls and women in education. It brings together a wonderful diversity of perspectives, with contributions from autistic people, parents, specialist teachers, clinicians and researchers. It will be of interest to anyone looking to promote the wellbeing and life chances of autistic girls and women.
Dr Will Mandy, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology, UCL

The distinctive educational experiences of autistic girls and young women have been overlooked for far too long. Hebron and Bond's superb edited collection begins to put that right by combining insightful personal reminiscences and professional reflections with cutting-edge research. This is a collection that everyone interested in autism research and practice needs to read.
Liz Pellicano, Professor of Educational Studies, Macquarie University, Australia

This book is an invaluable resource for those interested in providing appropriate support to autistic girls. It brings together personal experience, professional expertise and research in an accessible way. The subject is brought alive by compelling narratives, clear case studies and examples of excellent practice from a range of contexts.
Dr Karen Guldberg, Professor in Autism Studies, University of Birmingham
