Currently, one female is diagnosed with Asperger/Autism (ASD) for every four males diagnosed. Those who work in the field know the actual prevalence is closer to one Asperger female for every two males. One Korean study suggests that two-thirds of girls and women go undiagnosed as a result of subtler or different manifestations of the profile than boys and men. This means that many girls and women are slipping through the cracks, unrecognized for, and supported in, their unique challenges. Women with Asperger profiles, like men, have a range of Asperger traits of varying degrees. AANE can help women understand how their Asperger traits may be different from men or what is portrayed in the media.
