Intellectual & Learning Profiles Associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder 

Presented by: Dr. Craig Ross (Psychologist) & Katherine Stover, M.A. (Psychology Resident)



This workshop has been developed in response to community requests and will review several broad areas, including the diagnosis of ASD, sex differences in the presentation of ASD, Intellectual Disability and ASD, and academic implications of a diagnosis of ASD.  Through a review of current literature, clinical experiences, and sample profiles, current trends and best practices will be discussed.  This workshop is intended to be of greatest benefit to clinicians and educators and will include opportunities for discussion where possible. 

Learning Objectives:

(1) Discuss diagnostic and skill profile differences between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disability (ID)

(2) Analyze current understanding of male/female differences for those with co-occurring diagnosis of ASD and ID

(3) Examine areas of academic learning that are most likely to be impacted by a diagnosis of ASD and how these may present differently across the elementary and high school years
