I am currently seeking a family who has a daughter on the spectrum. Although autism is more prevalent in boys, girls often fly below the radar and are diagnosed much later in life. Girls may be quick to “copy” social interaction in an attempt to “fit in” with their peers. New research also suggests the disorder often looks different in females, many of whom are being misdiagnosed and missing out on the support they need because the research has focused on boys.

Thank you for your support,

Deborah
