The combination of developing coping skills and generally having less severe symptoms than males, means that many girls and women struggle with the disorder without ever being diagnosed or receiving help.
Samantha Craft, an Asperian (someone with Asperger’s Syndrome) woman and mother of a child with Asperger’s Syndrome, has put together a long checklist of traits observed in women with Asperger’s Syndrome. Samantha has a master’s degree in Education, but she does not hold a doctorate in Psychiatry or Psychology. The list was created “in an effort to assist health professionals in recognizing Asperger’s Syndrome in females” and it is not intended to be used as an accurate diagnostic tool.
We have taken the list and transformed it into an assessment test that you may take and receive a calculated response like our other assessments.
