Abstract:
Women may present with slightly more subtle symptoms and could be more likely to only be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) during adulthood, which may have implications for the way in which they view themselves, and for potential relationships. This dissertation explores the experience of intimate relationships of women who have been diagnosed with ASD in adulthood. Semi-structured interviews were used to interview eight participants. The data was transcribed and analysed using the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) method.
