In Northern Ireland, males are three times more likely to have a diagnosis of autism than females. Often, autistic girls and women are diagnosed later than males, due to misconceptions.

Together we can increase discussion and promote better understanding of autistic females who are active participants of the autism community in Northern Ireland. Just like everyone else, autistic females are unique, and their personalities vary from person to person. 

Girls and Autism Project

Our Girls and Autism Project (GAP) is funded to work with girls aged 11 -18 years and their families in the Northern Trust area. The service aims to remove barriers for autistic girls within the home, school, and community environments to support achievement, enjoyment and full participation. 

We can support each girl and her family from 6 – 26 weeks, providing tailored programs based on individual and family needs.
