Seed Talks: Autism & Women with Dr Rachel Moseley

Monday 13th May 2024
16:30 -
19:00

“Quirky” girls, struggling teenagers, burnt-out women. Autism has been historically underdiagnosed in girls and women, meaning many grow up without the right support and understanding. Drawing on her research and her lived experience of a late autism diagnosis, Dr Rachel Moseley explores the lesser known presentation of autism in girls and women, why it’s so difficult to diagnose, and what the consequences of growing up undiagnosed can be.

Doors open at 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm – come down early to grab a good seat!

Her research centres on issues facing autistic adults, most notably mental ill-health and suicidality.
