What is it like to be a woman on the spectrum?

Do the typical features that characterize autism change when comparing males and females?

We are living in exciting times where more is gradually becoming known about the differences of how autism can manifest itself in women. The latest research will be touched upon and examples of many different women on the spectrum will be used to illustrate these potential differences. Too many women are receiving an incorrect diagnosis prior to eventually discovering it is autism. This is due to the lack of knowledge at grassroots level in particular of the different characteristics. This obviously has to change!
