This is a non-official checklist created by an adult female with Asperger’s Syndrome who has a son with Asperger’s Syndrome. Samantha Craft holds a Masters Degree in Education. Samantha Craft does not hold a doctorate in Psychiatry or Psychology. She has a life-credential as a result of being a female with Asperger’s Syndrome and being a parent of a child with Asperger’s Syndrome. She has created this list in an effort to assist mental health professionals in recognising Asperger’s Syndrome in females.
This list was compiled after nine years of readings, research, and experience associated with Asperger’s Syndrome. More information can be found at aspergersgirls.wordpress.com © Everyday Aspergers, 2012. Summarized into ten female Asperger’s traits, visit everydayaspergers.com/2012/02/10/
