More than two developmental pathways in children with gender dysphoria?
TLDR
The conclusion seemed to be that children with GD are “persisters” or “desisters�” (children for whom the GD feelings desisted in adolescence and who do not reapply for treatment), and that the outcome becomes clear in the early stages of puberty. Expand
Do Children With Gender Dysphoria Have Intense/Obsessional Interests?
TLDR
The findings for Item 9 support the idea that children with GD show an elevation in obsessional interests, and may be one of the factors underlying the purported link between GD and ASD. Expand

TLDR
The work summarizes some of the published conclusions of the DSM-5 and ICD-11 revision processes regarding three particular controversies: stigma versus access to care; the retention of a child gender diagnosis; and the treatment of prepubescent transgender children. Expand

TLDR
Both boys and girls in the persistence group were more extremely cross-gendered in behavior and feelings and were more likely to fulfill gender identity disorder (GID) criteria in childhood than the children in the other two groups. Expand
Factors associated with desistence and persistence of childhood gender dysphoria: a quantitative follow-up study.
TLDR
Intensity of early GD appears to be an important predictor of persistence of GD, and clinical recommendations for the support of children with GD may need to be developed independently for natal boys and for girls. Expand

Two years of gender identity service for minors: overrepresentation of natal girls with severe problems in adolescent development
