Is This Autism? Recognizing & Understanding the Less Obvious Presentations of Autism

Is This Autism? Recognizing & Understanding the Less Obvious Presentations of Autism Moderator: Patricia Mittelstadt, Ph.D., ABPdNSpeaker: Donna Henderson, Psy.D., The Stixrud Group, Silver Spring, MD$48 for AAPdN Members (20% Discount)$60 for Non-MembersFREE for Student Members$20 for Student Non-Members Over the past few decades, the prevalence of autism has risen from 1 in 150 to 1 in 44. This is due in part to our more sophisticated understanding of individuals who camouflage and thus have less obvious external presentations of autism. This wider understanding of autism began with females, who can present differently from their male counterparts and are at particular risk of being misdiagnosed and misunderstood. However, we now know that that the less obvious presentations of autism can also apply to clients throughout the gender spectrum. Recent research suggests that there are still significant numbers of undiagnosed autistics (of all genders) in various clinical populations and that accurate diagnosis can be life changing for this population. However, many clinicians, both novice and seasoned, continue to feel ill-equipped to recognize autism and/or to rely an outdated understanding of it. This workshop will provide clear and practical guidance for a neurodiversity-affirmative diagnostic process.This workshop will provide that clarity:Describe characteristics of individuals with a less obvious presentation of autism.Identify ways that autistic females can present differently from autistic males.Identify components of an effective social cognition assessment.Learning objectives:1. Describe characteristics of individuals with a less obvious presentation of autism.2. Identify ways that autistic females can present differently from autistic males.3. Identify components of an effective social cognition assessment. AAPdN Workshop Registration October 2022
