The NFWI Board of Trustees has agreed to put this resolution forward to the Annual Meeting in June.
The wording of the resolution is as follows:
Women and Girls with ASD & ADHD - under-identified, under-diagnosed, misdiagnosed, under-supported
Women and girls presenting with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are going undiagnosed. The NFWI calls on the government and funding bodies to fund research into the female presentation of ASD and ADHD, and for action to be taken to improve the diagnosis process for women and girls, to ensure that they are equipped to better manage these conditions and do not suffer in silence. The NFWI further calls on WI members to raise awareness within their WIs of the issues facing women and girls with ASD and ADHD.
What happens next?
Members now have the opportunity to learn more about the issue, and to discuss the resolution in their WIs before deciding how their delegate should vote at the Annual Meeting.
The NFWI has prepared a range of resources on the shortlisted resolution that you can use to aid your WI’s decision, including:
