Kira Armstrong, PhD, ABPP-CN
Given the high prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and overlapping symptoms with medically complex groups, ASD should be considered a rule-out diagnosis for neuropsychologists even when it’s not identified in the initial presenting concerns. This webinar will highlight practical guidance to support neuropsychologists in their ability to accurately diagnose (or rule out) ASD through a review of common misconceptions about ASD as well as complexities associated with comorbidities and differential diagnosis. We will discuss the importance of attending to and disentangling the etiologies behind “red flags” (clearly diagnostic, classic symptoms) and “pink flags” (features and symptoms that are suggestive of ASD but not quite definitive) to support the differential diagnostic process in this population.
Dr. Kira Armstrong is board certified in clinical neuropsychology with a subspecialty in pediatric neuropsychology. She has been a board member or chair of local and national professional organizations, including the Massachusetts Neuropsychological Society (MNS) and the Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN). She directed a hospital-based pediatric neuropsychology service in Chicago before moving to Boston to direct a pediatric neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship training program, and then transitioning to private practice. Dr. Armstrong is the co-author of the book, Feedback that Sticks, as well as many other publications (including chapters, journal articles, and another book), and frequently presents (or co-presents) at local and national conference workshops. She is also the Co-Editor of a special edition on Autism for The Clinical Neuropsychologist (TCN) that will be published later this year (2022).
