  • Culturally and Linguistically Responsive ASD Identification

    November 12, 2019 Session # 184687

    Culturally and Linguistically Responsive ASD Identification Disparities in ASD identification, particularly by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic indicators, have been documented for decades. Despite the awareness, reduction of these disparities has been limited. This advanced-level webinar will provide national and Texas state data pertaining to trends in ASD identification disparities. Participants will gain knowledge pertaining to the potential impact of culture and language on ASD assessment practices, culturally and linguistically responsive ASD identification strategies, and promising practices that lead to earlier and more accurate ASD identification in traditionally underserved populations.

  • Gender Differences in the Identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder

    December 10, 2019 Session # 184692

    According to the most current data from the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM), about 1 in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), with a ratio of 4:1 males to females. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) acknowledges potential ‘Gender-related diagnostic issues’ in the autism spectrum disorder section, noting potentially subtler social and communication characteristics. This session will identify and explore emerging research regarding potential gender differences in the school-based identification of autism under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
