Overlapping Spectrums: Gender Creativity and Autism

  • The Ability Hub, Child Development Centre 300, 3820 - 24th Ave NW Calgary, AB Canada

Researchers have identified the co-occurrence of gender diversity and autism as an important emerging issue in terms of clinical practice. Parents, clinicians, and educators, and support professionals in the fields of autism and gender are increasingly likely to encounter clients, patients, and families working to understand gender diversity and autism simultaneously. This workshop will share current findings and perspectives on gender diversity for individuals on the autism spectrum and will present evidence-informed practices for supporting gender creative children and transgender youth who are also on the autism spectrum.
