#05 Aspergers for Girls

Isabella always felt different.  As a child she was something of a loner with few friends.  After  three unsuccessful marriages, and with two children, one of whom is autistic, she met Edward who worked with children with special needs.  Finally, in her 30s, Isabella was diagnosed with high-functioning autism.  She explains to Suzy why she was diagnosed so late in life, the effect her condition has and what family life is like when half the members have autism and half are neurotypical.
