Like autism, gender exists on a spectrum...
With the rise in clients seeking services related to gender identity, we know many are autistic. We also know gender identity and sexuality are more diverse among autistic individuals when compared to the allistic (non-autistic) population.
To best help your autistic clients looking for support related to their gender identity and sexuality, it’s imperative you understand how the two spectrums overlap.
Join Wenn Lawson, PhD, an autistic transgender psychologist as he guides you through the implications for gender and sexual development, diagnosis, as well as how to support this diverse population. This session explores these issues and more!
This online program is worth 1 hours CPD.
