This is an excellent guide on understanding the life experiences of autistic women.

Sarah Hendrickx collates scientific research with testimonials from girls and woman on their experience of life as an autistic person, highlighting the differences from the classical male autism and the issues particular to female auties.

The book is split into useful sections that talk about issues and experiences faced by autistic people at different stages of their life – infancy, pregnancy, ageing etc.

I found it a very useful in-depth book explaining why and how we experience things the way we do. It is suitable for teenagers and adults, and would be a great resource to share with family members, carers and friends.
