Tania has worked in the area of child psychology, Autism, Asperger Syndrome and related developmental conditions for 20 years, in a variety of roles. She has worked in private school, hospital and private practice settings. Tania holds a Master of Science in Applied Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
Currently, Tania works in private practice with individuals who have/are Asperger syndrome, autism, highly sensitive, gifted, twice-exceptional (2e), anxiety, OCD, depression and/or learning differences.
Tania has worked with hundreds of females who have been misdiagnosed, are 'self-diagnosed' or had some of the defining characteristics of Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning Autism, but not enough for a formal diagnosis. Many of these individuals have a stunning array of gifts and talents, in addition to challenges. This particular group of individuals tend to have some the characteristic traits of Asperger Syndrome or High Functioning Autism, but often present differently, confusing professionals. The field of female Autism is a very new area of research, and as such, very little is known.
In private practice, Tania was seeing more and more females being referred to her, who presented with a number of diagnoses, who had not been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Condition, yet had some features of Autism. This peaked her interest as she found it a fascinating area of research. This interest combined with the lack of knowledge, resources and awareness of females was the reason Tania decided to create the AspienGirl® Project, consisting of education, awareness, advocacy and philanthropy.
Tania wrote her first book, in a series, on female Autism, entitled, "I Am AspienGirl®: The Unique Characteristics, Traits and Gifts of Females on the Autism Spectrum". The Foreward was written by world expert Dr. Judith Gould, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Director of the NAS Lorna Wing Centre for Autism, UK. Testimonials have been provided also by world experts Dr. Temple Grandin and Dr. Shana Nichols. This amazing group of females are trailblazers in their own right and Tania is most grateful to have their support.
