IRCA Webinar: Understanding Autism in Girls: Missed and Misunderstood
October 24, 2022 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Throughout the school year, Indiana Resource Center for Autism hosts free family support webinars using expertise from across the state. Presentations will cover topics identified by family members to be of particular interest.
This webinar will seek to illuminate information regarding ASD in girls and why it can often go missed or misunderstood. There is a growing body of literature that suggests that there is a male bias in what we know about ASD. This presentation will review our growing understanding of how the presentation of symptoms and life experiences of girls with ASD may be different from boys. In light of this information, appropriate implications for treatment will be discussed. Register Now
