          There is a tendency to focus primarily on boys when looking at young people with autism since more males are diagnosed as being on the spectrum. I have been following the education of young Iris Grace in the UK as she is growing and developing; it is very important that we not forget the girls during this Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month. Today’s post is a good overview of the differences between boys and girls on the spectrum. The featured images are all from Iris Grace Painting.
