Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) impacts an individual’s ability to communicate or act. Though much has been accomplished to identify autism in males, research regarding autism in females is lacking. CASD recently has uncovered clues as to why girls with ASD may not get as much attention and treatment as boys with the same condition.
How is autism different in boys than in girls?
How can we begin to address ASD in girls?
At Children’s National, we actively work with the autism and research communities to figure out why autism is different in girls than in boys. As we work to understand these differences, and lead the industry in discovering more about girls with autism, we can continue to help narrow the diagnosis gap.
