Experts believe that thousands of people in the UK are living with autism without knowing it and many of them are women.

In the past it was thought to be mostly a male condition, but research now suggests that maybe women are just better at disguising their autism in social situations.

‘We might laugh at jokes we don’t understand or pre-plan questions so we have something to ask,’ says Emily, who wasn’t diagnosed until she was 28.

Presenters Georgia Harper and Sam Ahern, who are both autistic, debunk other misconceptions about the condition, while Anna Richardson follows two people, Jo and JP, to find out if their suspicions that they’re autistic are correct.
