The Subtle Presentations of Autism
Here is a link to a video created by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. In it, I discussed the core features of autism as they present in children and adolescents with subtle manifestations of symptoms and I also focused on the particular challenge of recognizing autism in girls. My colleague Bill Stixrud (author of The Self-Driven Child) then discusses the motivational and self-regulatory challenges experienced by students with a mild presentation of autism, emphasizing the importance of supporting the development of autonomy.
