Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: The Female Profile of Autism: A new protocol for assessment and strategies

Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in females has been a challenge for many years due to the lack of understanding and recognition of their complex characteristics. Dr. Hénault has been involved in developing guidelines to address the problem of diagnosing ASD in females (co-written with Pr. Tony Attwood, V. Pasin & B. Wicker, 2020). During her presentation, she will discuss different strategies to address the needs for education, intervention and services dedicated to females with ASD.
