Dr Kassy Drossou will be presenting a talk on Aspergers and Social Thinking at the ALAG Group (Autism London), which is a support group for people with an Autism Spectrum Condition. The event is on the 1st of July from 6.30-8.30 at the Islington Town Hall. For more information about the event and how to register please follow the link below:
When Asperger’s syndrome (AS) was first recognised as part of the autism spectrum, there was uncertainty around who it applied to and what impact it had on people’s lives. Since then, we have gained a better understanding of this high-functioning aspect of the autism spectrum and how it affects men and women differently. Current research shows that women and girls have a greater tendency and capacity to mask their symptoms. Could this mean that many more women may be on the Autism Spectrum than previously thought?
Our speaker, Ruth Millman, has been supporting individuals with autism for over 15 years. She previously set up and managed day and outreach services for adults with autism as part of the National Autistic Society and was also instrumental in setting up a Women’s group as part of that work.
Ruth has post graduate qualifications in Asperger’s Syndrome and Low Intensity Psychological Interventions. She is a qualified Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner and has worked as a senior practitioner in NHS primarily mental health care services and until very recently she worked as the Director of Studies and a teaching fellow at the University of Surrey.
