Description of activity

Girls Connect support group - for parent/carers of girls with autism spectrum conditions or on the social communication pathway or who may be on the spectrum.

Our Girls Connect group usually meets at our sessions at the Crossways Centre on occasional Friday mornings, but have moved online currently.

They are now holding coffee mornings by Zoom.

This group aims to support parents of GIRLS with autism and operates in conjunction with our NAS coffee events which are for parent/carers of all children and young people with autism.

Girls who have autism often manifest the condition very differently from boys. They may "mask" it and therefore be later diagnosed than boys.

This support group has been set up so that parent/carers of girls can share experiences, ideas, support and strategies.

Girls Connect is an information sharing forum for parents of girls and women who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder and who live primarily, but not exclusively, in the South West London area. The group is also open to older girls / young women with ASD.

The forum was founded in June 2015 with the aim of using the network to share resources, information, events and services that are relevant to girls on the spectrum, as well as provide support to their parents and carers. To date Girls Connect has been running monthly coffee mornings across South West London, including during Skylarks sessions on Friday mornings. There is also an invitation-only Facebook page for sharing information.

If you are interested in joining the group, you can search for the group, Southwest London Girls Connect on Facebook and request admittance or email swlondongirlsconnect@gmail.com
