This thesis reports on a qualitative study applying Framework Analysis to narratives elicited from fourteen young women with high-functioning ASD. Semi-structured interviews highlighted experiences specific to being a young female with ASD, including delays in getting a diagnosis, vulnerability to abuse in relationships and compensatory strategies used in social situations. Challenges specific to females with ASD were singled out for discussion, as were clinical implications such as the need to increase medical and educational professionals’ knowledge of female ASD and suggestions for future quantitative research.
