Behind the Mask: Autism for Women and Girls (TEDx Talk)

While I have talked about my experience of being autistic (and will be doing more of this week), I also wanted to share this video because it’s a very good summary of Autism in women, covering multiple important topics.

In this TEDx talk, Kate Kahle talks a little about her experience as an autistic woman but she also talks about some of the history behind Autism and Asperger Syndrome, the evolution of the different labels used in relation to Autism, the differences experienced by women, masking, special interests, the mental health implications, and some of the ways to support autistic individuals.

The rest of my posts for this week are more substantial but I really wanted to share this video this week. I wanted to post a range of things: word, photos, and video. We all process information differently and I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone.
