Yellow Ladybugs is dedicated to the happiness, success and celebration of autistic girls and women. Our mission is to improve the lives of autistic girls and women, when needed. We aim to do this by raising acceptance and awareness about the female presentation of autism in the education, employment, medical and general community. We also strive to create positive inclusive experiences for autistic girls and women and often advocate for the rights of autistic girls and women. We support identity first language, and uphold the values of "nothing about us, without us".
Yellow Ladybugs is a volunteer community group who proudly create social events, similar to birthday parties, where girls can come together and have the opportunity to meet and bond over their similar journey. Our vision is to foster a strong bond, which will ultimately create a network of friends outside of school.
