Tony Attwood will explore the psychological adaptations to autism that occur in childhood and adolescence, especially the adaptations made by girls and women and the challenges diagnosing intellectually able adults. There will also be a focus on quality of life and sense of self.

Learning objectives

• To understand the psychological adaptations to autism of depression, imagination, arrogance and imitation.

• Recognise how girls and women can camouflage and compensate for their autistic characteristics and to accommodate those characteristics in a diagnostic assessment.

• To recognise that autism can be associated with an alternative quality of life and sense of self.
