Autism: It’s Not Just for Males Anymore – A Primer for Professionals

AIDE Canada
This Infographic is a brief summary of a Toolkit, by Dr. Glenis Benson, addrssing educators, parents, and yet-to-be diagnosed females, transgendered and nonbinary individuals about an alternative presentation of autism. The ratio of males to females appears to be much lower than previously thought. Obstacles to diagnosing those who do not present with the male phenotype are revealed, and the overlap with sexual and gender minorities and with eating disorders are exposed. Problems with the classification system and diagnostic tools are illuminated and alternative tools are identified.
