This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh only.

When: Wednesday 22 May, 6pm – 8pm.

About the event:  

Join Corrie Mclean in this informal session to discuss how girls with autism are often overlooked, under-diagnosed and less likely to get long-term support. We will look at issues that autistic girls may face and you will learn practical skills to support them and you as a carer.
Topics include:
• What we are learning about girls and autism through current research
• How autism may affect girls differently, and the key characteristics to look out for
• Issues that autistic girls may face during puberty and beyond including mental health
• Practical skills to help girls and yourselves as carers

Delivered by:

Corrie McLean. Corrie has been working in education for a decade, developing her specialist skills in sexual health and inclusive learning. She works closely with vulnerable individuals with ASN and parents and carers who support them.
