in girls and young women on the autism spectrum: diagnosis, intervention and family support
By Judy Eaton
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2018, 245 p.

Addresses the mental health needs of girls and young women with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Looks at the ways autism presents differently in girls than boys, and the mental health conditions that occur most frequently in girls with ASD. Explains why girls are under- or mis-diagnosed, and how that contributes to later mental health issues. Outlines the types of interventions that are particularly helpful for working with girls to reduce anxiety, improve social skills, and manage self-harm. Covers how to manage eating disorders, dissociative disorders, and psychosis, and working with sensory processing difficulties.
