Broad Spectrum comes to Radio 4

7 September 2020

Autism, despite being seen as a particularly ‘male’ condition, is increasingly being diagnosed in women in their 30s, 40s and 50s – or even later in life.

WCCEH PhD student Helen Keen is one of them, and she has produced a half-hour documentary – Broad Spectrum – for BBC Radio 4, talking with other women and non-binary people about their experiences of late-life diagnosis.

Airing on September 8th at 11am, Helen has interviewed a range of people about their diagnostic process of autism, and how this has impacted their lives. She will also be exploring how neurodiversity can and should be valued and celebrated.
