As a result of having an autistic daughter she became involved in researching developmental disorders, particularly autistic spectrum disorders. She joined with other parents of autistic children to found the National Autistic Society (http://www.nas.org.uk/) in the United Kingdom in 1962. She currently works part-time as Consultant Psychiatrist at the NAS Centre for Social and Communication Disorders at Elliot House. She lives in Sussex in England.

Wing is the author of many books and academic papers. She is particularly well known as the author of Asperger's Syndrome: a Clinical Account (http://www.mugsy.org/wing2.htm), a 1981 academic paper that popularised the research of Hans Asperger and introduced the term Asperger's Syndrome.
