AuDHD Guidance: Why Autism Is So Difficult to Diagnose in Women and Girls with ADHD

June 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


EXPERT: Karen Saporito, Ph.D.

Lived experience and increasing empirical research suggest that ADHD and autism are spectrum conditions that present differently across development and genders, making accurate diagnoses and treatment both challenging and vital.

This presentation will explain the ways in which ADHD and autism overlap and how they can present differently in children and adults — and across genders. In this webinar, you will also learn:

  • About how AuDHD is diagnosed in children and adults
  • How autism can look different from childhood to adulthood and across genders
  • About the association between autism and gender diversity
  • Why autism is so easily missed and misdiagnosed, especially in girls and women, and the consequences of that
  • About the myths and misinformation about autism in adults and girls and women
  • About what your medical and mental health providers need to know and how you can help them make an accurate diagnosis
  • Future directions in diagnosis and treatment
