The subtle presentations of autism: What we’ve learned from the girls

The subtle presentations of autism: What we’ve learned from the girls  (CE 3) Donna Henderson, Psy.D. and Jamell White, Ph.D., LCSW-C Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM This CE satisfies the MD requirement for Psychologists for cultural competence. Level: Beginner/ intermediate / Advanced. This workshop is appropriate for every level. Over the past 20 years the prevalence of autism has risen from 1 in 150 to 1 in 59. This is due at least in part to our more sophisticated understanding of bright individuals with a less obvious presentation of autism. Still, boys and men continue to be diagnosed far more frequently than girls and women (approximately 4:1). Recent research demonstrates that many females on the spectrum are being misdiagnosed or missed entirely. In the past ten years, there has been a burst of research on girls and women with autism, particularly those with average to above average intellectual functioning, and it has become clear that they present differently from their male counterparts in many ways. Moreover, research demonstrates that these girls and women are highly vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. While this less obvious presentation of autism seems to be most common in females, it can also apply to clients throughout the gender spectrum. Receiving a proper diagnosis can be lifechanging for this population, so it is essential that all clinicians are updated on the ways to recognize the subtle presentations of autism, particularly but not exclusively in females. This workshop will provide that clarity. This presentation will address diversity issues related to gender and race/culture, as well as neurodiversity. Specific to gender, there will be an emphasis on explaining the range of symptom presentation for autistic females compared to that of autistic males. Additionally, there will be discussion around the importance of understanding how to approach the therapeutic relationship with individuals and families in a culturally/racially-sensitive manner. The information will be presented in a neurodiversity-affirmative manner. GET TICKETS Objectives 1. Describe characteristics of individuals with a less obvious presentation of autism. 2. Identify ways that autistic females present differently from autistic males. 3. Identify components of an effective social cognition assessment. 4. Recognize the intersection of race/culture in our work with clients Presenters Dr. Donna Henderson has been a clinical psychologist for 30 years. She earned her doctoral degree from the School of Professional Psychology at Wright State University and subsequently worked as a staff psychologist and then Director of Acquired Brain Injury at the Gaylord Hospital in Connecticut.

This is due in part to our more sophisticated understanding of verbal individuals with a less obvious presentation of autism. Still, boys and men continue to be diagnosed far more frequently than girls and women (approximately 4:1). It has always been assumed that the prevalence of autistic boys is naturally greater than girls, but recent research demonstrates that many autistic females are being misdiagnosed or missed entirely. In the past ten years, there has been a burst of research on autistic girls and women, particularly those with average to above average intellectual functioning, and it has become clear that they can present differently from their male counterparts in many ways. Moreover, research demonstrates that these girls and women are highly vulnerable to multiple co-occurring challenges, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and victimization. While this less obvious presentation of autism seems to be most common in females, it can also apply to clients throughout the gender spectrum. Receiving a proper diagnosis can be life changing for this population, so it is essential that all clinicians are updated on the ways to recognize all presentations of autism.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.
