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.
Chloe Rothschild with Kelly Mahler, MS, OTR/L This webinar will focus on interoception (the 8th sense) and autism spectrum disorders. Interoception helps you to understand and feel what's going on inside your body. Those who struggle with the interoception may have trouble knowing when they feel hungry, full, hot, cold or thirsty. Having trouble with this sense can also make self‐regulation a challenge. In this webinar Kelly Mahler MS,OTR/L, will interview Chloe Rothschild about her personal experiences living with interoceptive differences.
