Ruth Aspy, Ph.D. There are more males than females with ASD; however, the imbalance may be exaggerated. The description of ASD, and consequently the tools used to identify ASD, are based on what ASD looks like in males. As a result, females with ASD are often not referred or are misidentified – they fall through the cracks. Unidentified/misidentified, and poorly served, their path is a difficult one. One disorder may cascade into others, such as anxiety and depression. This presentation will provide strategies and solutions for better identifying and serving females with ASD.

Melinda Henson, MS Ed, BCBA, Toileting successfully is a skill that has a significant and long-term impact on an individual’s quality of life outcome. By actively teaching toileting skills, we can have an immediate impact on levels of independence at home and school; increase opportunities for social & group acceptance; widen options for work and school that may not otherwise be possible; and decrease frustration and the risk of abuse as they become adults. Interventions presented will focus on how to identify and implement the most appropriate toilet training strategy for your child/student.
