My daughter is 11 years old who now is waiting for a second assessment for ASD. We have waited 8 years for this assessment, I have been through MP's now I am going through the legal service to pursue legal action again the NHS. Boy's seem to be diagnosed with this condition from a very early age. I feel it is sickening to know that the females have been pushed aside. I don't know what you think of sexism in diagnosing autism ASD.

I live in Liverpool, UK. The males are diagnosed when they are younger. I have been told by many professionals that Autism is more diffficult to diagnose in girls. I sueing the NHS for neglect of my daughter's needs. I will be attending court in December.
