Girls and Autism book is launched in London

On 2nd April, to a packed audience this groundbreaking new book was launched in London. The pages of the book came to life with workshops from each of the contributors, gathered together in the photograph below.

Sheila, the Baroness Hollins, welcomed the book, saying it held promise and opportunity for so many girls and their families.

Girls from Limpsfield Grange School spoke of their experiences of the education system.

The Hollyoaks actress, Talia Grant, and Drama and Art student Grace Dolan , both talked openly of their struggles with mental health, and the lack of acknowledgement of their female presentation of Autism. Both were accompanied to the stage by their Mothers, Carrie Grant ( Broadcaster and Vocal Coach), and Sophie Walker, (Co Founder of the Women’s Equality Party)

From London the book will travel over the coming months for Launch Events in Belfast, Oslo, Barcelona, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Auckland , New Zealand, New York and Dubai.
