Sex Differences in the Traits and Diagnosis of Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorder(s)

Research Study

This study will examine the differences between males ad females in the traits and diagnosis of ASD by using a series of 13 questions. Through a collection of survey responses, it is my hope that I will find more traits that can be changed/added to the diagnostic criteria for ASD so that it is more inclusive to those who aren’t male and who don’t solely display the traits that are often associated with the current diagnostic criteria, which has been heavily based on male traits and characteristics. By changing the diagnostic criteria to fit more people with ASD, more people will have access to important resources and help that they might need.
