Gender Differences in Core Symptomatology in Autism Spectrum Disorders across the Lifespan

Although gender disparity in ASD has been long documented, research addressing gender related to core ASD symptomatology (e.g., domains, severity, breadth, etc.) is scant. The present research

The clinician perspective on sex differences in autism spectrum disorders

Clinicians noted more sex-related differences in restricted and repetitive behaviors and fewer differences for social communication features, suggesting this time period as a critical and particularly vulnerable window for females with autism spectrum disorder.

Gender Differences and Similarities: Autism Symptomatology and Developmental Functioning in Young Children

A growing body of research suggests that symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may present differently in males and females. This study examined gender differences in ASD symptoms and

Gender Differences and Similarities: Autism Symptomatology and Developmental Functioning in Young Children

Females with ASD had greater motor deficits and less communication impairment compared to their male counterparts as measured by the Battelle Developmental Inventory, 2nd Edition (BDI-2).

Sex and gender differences in autism spectrum disorder: summarizing evidence gaps and identifying emerging areas of priority

In October of 2014, Autism Speaks and the Autism Science Foundation co-organized a meeting that brought together almost 60 clinicians, researchers, parents, and self-identified autistic individuals with recommendations on directions of future research endeavors.

Autism in Boys and Girls, Women and Men Throughout the Lifespan

The huge differences in clinical expression, gender differences, as well as differences as development progresses will be discussed, including the notion of developmental psychopathology in which the external interaction with the environment plays an important role.

Sex Differences in Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Investigation on Core Symptoms and Psychiatric Comorbidity in Preschoolers

The findings of no difference in the autism severity and lower internalizing problems in females than males with ASD extend the knowledge of autism in females during preschool years, and confirms the need for clinicians to consider sex differences when describing autism psychopathology.

Engendering Autism: Gender and Sensory Processing in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are characterized by a gender ratio skewed heavily towards males. To effectively address this discrepancy, the nature of sex and gender differences in ASD is examined.



Sex Differences in Toddlers with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Girls achieved higher visual reception scores than boys; boys attained higher language and motor scores and higher social-competence ratings than girls, particularly when controlling for visual reception.

Autism spectrum disorders: sex differences in autistic behaviour domains and coexisting psychopathology

Examination of possible differences between high‐functioning males and females with autism spectrum disorder regarding the core symptoms of autism and coexisting psychopathology found significantly more symptoms in females than males, particularly social problems.

Diagnosing high incidence autism spectrum disorders in adults

Sex differences in pervasive developmental disorders

The three clinical groups differed, in expected ways, in the various measures of severity of autism with the PDD-NOS cases being intermediate between the strictly diagnosed autistic group and the non-PDD developmental disordered group.

Intellectual disability and its relationship to autism spectrum disorders.

Autism spectrum disorders

The objectives of this article are to provide physicians with relevant information needed to identify and refer children presenting with symptoms suggestive of ASDs to specialized centers early, and to make them feel comfortable in dealing with public concerns regarding controversial issues about the etiology and management of these disorders.

Autism and autism spectrum disorders: diagnostic issues for the coming decade.

A decade and a half have elapsed since DSM-IV and ICD-10 appeared. During this time the convergent definitions of autism and related disorders in these two diagnostic systems have stimulated

Social-Skills Treatments for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

It is noted that the research has been particularly marked by fragmented development, using a range of intervention approaches and definitions of the construct, and large-scale group studies and comparisons of different training strategies are almost nonexistent.

Prevalence of Autism among Adolescents with Intellectual Disabilities

The overall prevalence estimate for autism is in the higher range of estimates reported in previous studies of ID (more so for mild ID).
