Women and Girls with ASD and ADHD Under-Identified, Under-Diagnosed and Under-Supported
Women and girls presenting with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are going undiagnosed. The
NFWI calls on the government and funding bodies to fund research into the
female presentation of ASD and ADHD, and for action to be taken to improve the diagnosis process for women and girls, to ensure that they are equipped to better manage these conditions and do not suffer in silence. The NFWI further calls on WI members to raise awareness within their WIs of the issues facing women and girls with ASD and ADHD.
