What is autism? Why are autistic women and girls less likely to receive a diagnosis? And what does the science really say about the underlying causes of autism?
In this episode of How We’re Wired, join evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin as she explores autism, from the striking prevalence of eating disorders in autistic women and girls to the mental load of masking, and the relief one teen felt when she could finally be herself.
With special thanks to Lab, Will Mandy, and Florina Uzefovsky.
