    Haven't posted for a long time but looking for some help for a friend.

    I'm looking for resources (books/websites/etc) dealing with teen girls and autism (ie what formerly would have been labeled as Asperger's).

    Welcome back, chay.
    You ask a great question, and fortunately there is a lot of rather new books and articles available.
    Here are a few to help your friend get started:

    The website A mighty GIRL has a post with A Different Way of Thinking: 30 Books About Autistic Mighty Girls

    An interesting reading list of Books About Autism in Women (My 2021 Reading List).

    The amazon page for this book,Women and Girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Understanding Life Experiences from Early Childhood to Old Age, has other links to follow.

    This review of the book, I Can Fix It!, has other links to follow.
