It is estimated that as many as five million people in Europe may be on the autism spectrum. For women with autism, it is especially difficult to get a diagnose. Currently scientific establishment states that for every five boys with an autism spectrum disorder, there is only one girl with autism. Project Autism in Pink suspects there are just as many women with autism as there are men.
Autism in Pink is an innovative European funded partnership between four EU based organizations. Autism in Pink has been setup to conduct research into autism and females. The project hopes to establish based upon research the needs of women with autism so appropriate support and educational opportunities may be provided.
