In this short video, parents of girls with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) talk about preparing their daughters for periods. They say it’s important to talk about periods before they happen. You might need to explain periods several times. You can get books on periods, which might help. Supportive relationships with peers or older sisters might also help girls handle this change in their lives.
