Event Type:  Seminar
Title:  NIMH Autism in Girls and Women: A Panel Discussion
Description:  Recent advances in research suggest that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) presents differently in males and females. As a result, researchers are seeking to understand the biological differences between ASD in males and females, as well as reevaluating the effectiveness of diagnostic tools and treatments for females on the autism spectrum. Meanwhile, girls and women with ASD are sharing their stories in order to increase awareness among researchers and the general public. This panel discussion will present three different perspectives on understanding ASD in girls and women. Dr. Kevin Pelphrey will be speaking on biological aspects of sex differences in ASD, Dr. Pamela Ventola will be speaking on observable differences in phenotype between girls and boys, and Ms. Zoe Gross will be speaking on personal and community experiences related to ASD in girls and women.
