“It Takes a Village:" Supporting Transgender and Gender Diverse Children and Youth and Their Families

This workshop will focus on ways to intervene with parents struggling to understand their child’s needs as well as their own. We will look at the history underpinning our current notions regarding gender and gender identity development. We will also explore the intersections of gender diversity and neurodiversity, particularly the overlap of the autism spectrum with the gender spectrum, presenting the most recent research findings in this area as well as therapeutic guidelines for working with gender diverse autistic children, youth, and their families.

Overlapping Spectrums: Gender Creativity and Autism

  • The Ability Hub, Child Development Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Researchers have identified the co-occurrence of gender diversity and autism as an important emerging issue in terms of clinical practice. Parents, clinicians, and educators, and support professionals in the fields of autism and gender are increasingly likely to encounter clients, patients, and families working to understand gender diversity and autism simultaneously. This workshop will share current findings and perspectives on gender diversity for individuals on the autism spectrum and will present evidence-informed practices for supporting gender creative children and transgender youth who are also on the autism spectrum.
