Historically, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and associated social communication difficulties (SCD) have been regarded as predominantly male disorders (Sayal et al., 2006). Based on limited research, it has been suggested that the presentation of ASD in girls varies greatly from that in boys (Cridland et al., 2014). The aim of this research was to explore the female presentation of SCD by investigating the experiences of Educational Psychologists (EPs) in order to consider how the role of the EP can be adapted to support girls with ASD and SCD. The research specifically focused on adolescent girls as the local context highlighted this as a critical time within their education.
