Autism and Girls: Closing the Gender Gap

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.
