DESCRIPTION

Join the Learning Disabilities Association of Montgomery County (LDAMC) as we welcome Dr. William Stixrud and Dr. Donna Henderson for an informative presentation on the Subtle Presentation of Autism.

The Subtle Presentation of Autism: Core features, gender differences, motivation, and self-regulation

In this presentation Dr. Henderson will discuss the core features of autism as they present in children and adolescents with subtle manifestations of symptoms and the particular challenge of recognizing autism in girls. Dr. Stixrud will discuss the motivational and self-regulatory challenges experienced by students with a mild presentation of autism and will emphasize the importance of supporting the development of autonomy.

Participants will learn:

  • Ways that autism directly impacts learning.
  • Ways that autism symptoms present in children and adolescents who struggle socially but are not obviously autistic.
  • Ways in which autism presents differently in girls and boys.
  • Reasons that students with autism experience more self-regulatory differences than most students.
  • Ways of supporting development of autonomy in students with autism.

* Continuing Education credits available through APA and ASHA.

A limited number of discounted admission scholarships available for current educators and future SLPs, teachers, psychologists (currently in degree programs). Contact us at programs@ldamc.org for more information about scholarships.
