I was once asked by a journalist whether I thought females with ASD “coped” better with their condition than males. My answer was no. I think some females cope differently and certainly many do not ‘cope’ at all.
One interesting point that is relevant here is that, generally, males are diagnosed with ASD much younger than females. What is often the case is that lots of young boys are diagnosed, but lots of young girls are not. Indeed, I’d say ‘most’ females aren’t diagnosed until adolescence and beyond (and it’s very common for them to be diagnosed well into adulthood).
If females are not diagnosed until adulthood then one conclusion you might come to is that it “means they must cope better.”
