Abstract: Recent data suggests a correlation between gender variance and ASD (de Vries et al, 2010) and sexual identities (George & Stokes, 2018; van Rijn et al., 2012). This presentation will address language associated with gender and sexual expansive identities and prevalence of these identities in the autistic community as it compares to general population. The presentation will also address potential barriers and challenges, ethical considerations, and treatment considerations throughout the diagnostic and treatment processes.
Learning Objectives for Participants:
- Participants will be able to discuss the correlation between gender and sexual variance and autism.
- Participants will identify the prevalence of gender and sexual expansive identities among autistic individuals.
- Participants will be able to relate gender and sexual variance diagnostic and treatment considerations to the BACB Ethics Code through an anti-oppressive lens.
- Participants will be able to discuss diagnostic and treatment considerations which take gender and sexual variance into account.
