HELLO AND WELCOME
This website is designed for girls and women with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. This blog is designed not only to notify girls and women with ASD of ways that they can be involved in research, but also to provide information on upcoming conferences, and to profile prominent ASD figures, researchers and clinicians.
My name is Alexandra Fulton (previously Head) and I am a PhD student, studying at Deakin University in Melbourne.
I am currently in the final stages of data collection for my PhD. I just need a few more participants to be completely done with data collection. This need for recruiting participants has led me to realise that my experience (difficulty recruiting participants) is not unique.
As such, I hope that this site can not only be a place where girls and women can connect, but also a place where researchers can advertise their research, reach participants and allow potential participants to connect directly with researchers.
I was the co-chair of the former Female ASD Special Interest Group at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR). This group had two highly successful meetings.
