Tag: Autistic women

Women with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often display symptoms differently than do autistic men. For example, they may be better able to mimic social standards and their fixations may occur across more socially acceptable topics. But women with ASD are at risk for abusive relationships, and a quarter of women with eating disorders are on the autism spectrum. Historically it was thought autism affected males more than females but this is being proved untrue as more and more women are being diagnosed that were overlooked before.
