Wrong – wrong – completely wrong about #autistic women not needing DX

experts don't think women who cope need an autism diagnosis
Baron-Cohen, Happé and others caution, however, that in some cases, women may have learned to cope enough that they don’t actually need a diagnosis. “If they’re coping, do they want to think of themselves or for others to think about them in that way?” asks Happé. “Then it becomes a big ethical issue, doesn’t it?”

No, wrong, completely wrong.

We need diagnosis more than ever, because we need to identify patterns about how our lives are structured and how to make the most of them.
