Aspergers in Girls
Aspergers in Girls - A Specialist Subject!
Aspergers in girls has always been diagnosed significantly less than in boys. This has led to girls and their parents being comparatively short-changed when it comes to advice and information. There is now thankfully more information coming out, but it's still a pretty under-researched area. Girls have many different factors to contend with than boys. For example the way that girls make relationships, how they view the world, what happens in their bodies and how their brains are made up all differ significantly from boys.
This department is an ongoing project within the site to bring the best and most recent information about Aspergers in girls. So that parents can find useful sources of information, as and when they need them, in order to help them offer even better support for your daughter.

Aspergers in Girls - Teaching my daughter "right and wrong"|
My daughter goes to school and tells them everything (a dear friend of mine is an aide in her room)I try to explain to her that some things are not other people business, may be private or that they most likely would not be interested. But just when I think I may have gotten through to her she will then ask "is it okay to tell them if we bought a new stove?" . . .

I have found immense rewards of being allowed to be part of this Community - mostly in articles, antedoctal reports from other parents and the always helpful comments and suggestions of Dave Angel.
