Autism and Girls: What's the Difference?
March 17, 2016
An exploration of gender differences in autism spectrum disorder.
Researchers are discovering that there is a lot we don't understand when it comes to explaining the gender differences in autism spectrum disorder. This Third Thursday focuses on Autism and Girls: What's the Difference? We will hear from a young woman diagnosed at age 28 and the mother of an adolescent girl diagnosed at 5 about their experiences. We will also hear from an internationally known researcher, writer and presenter who will tell us about about the status of current research and what it means for parents, schools and service providers.
