In New Zealand there is a lack of understanding and support services for females who receive a late diagnosis of Asperger’s or autism, writes researcher Stacey Dukes.
26 August 2020 – Research suggests that diagnosis for females typically occurs later than males, often leaving females’ needs unmet and a lack of understanding of the challenges facing females.
This research would help us understand what the process of what diagnosis meant, explore coping mechanisms and how you have adjusted to the diagnosis.
As part of my Masters research, I would like to know more about this group.
- Thank you to all those who agreed to participate. We have enough people now.
