About the event

Felice Orlich, PhD will discuss affirmative approaches with gender-diverse and intersectional youth in support of their gender journey. She will address best practices in evaluating gender-diverse youth with a focus on co-occurring challenges often experienced by these youth. Within this context, she will focus on core assessment guidelines with a focus on neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD. Dr. Orlich will also discuss emerging research on the overlap of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Gender Diversity.

As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Define affirmative best practices in evaluating gender diverse youth;

2. Describe co-occurring challenges, specifically neurodevelopmental disorders in gender diverse youth to guide neuropsychological assessment of GD youth;

3. Explain the overlap of ASD and Gender Diversity including implications for screening among both groups.

Dr. Orlich is a Clinical Professor at the University of Washington's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and serves as the director of Seattle Children's Autism Center Gender Clinic.
