Autism in girls/women is an area which often falls to the psychiatrist to treat, yet most psychiatrists are not taught how to diagnose and treat patients with autism, or more specifically girls/women with autism. The goal of this conference is to fill in this gap such that attendees will have an understanding of how to diagnose autism in girls/women as well as treatment strategies.
