Difference between boys and girls

I saw this pop up in my feed today on Facebook. It is actually a breakdown in differences for Aspergers children, but it fits my son and daughter who is on the spectrum as well.

  1. This is really interesting. And, I’m sure, like all asd symptom lists, this is a partial and not applicable to all, blah blah blah. BUT, seeing this really makes me appreciate all the times I’ve seen/heard people say that girls are much harder to diagnose than boys. Just wow.

    • I have Both a boy and girl on the spectrum and it was scary how it pegged them. I’m sure we will never know to full extent of traits and even these listed can/will vary as more and more is understood. But it gives me goose bumps.

      • My oldest has several “Aspie traits,” per the psychiatrist we consulted with after a panic attack. Not enough to diagnose her as specifically Aspie, but enough to make us go, “huh.” Her issues were more typically associated with boys: sensory, food issues (textures) and more “boy-associated” social traits.

      • Bug has pdd-nos. He has both aspie and ASD traits. But I guess it not longer matters since they redid the criteria. So guess this could apply to ASD in general.
