Autism and Girls

Hosted by

Boys are about five times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls. But the gap between boys and girls may be less about biology and more about screening. Research shows that autism is harder to detect in girls. And many girls go undiagnosed far into their adolescence and, in some cases, into adulthood.
