Detecting camouflage of symptoms in girls whose autism improves across childhood

2021 Predoctoral Fellowships

University of California, Davis
Davis, California
United States

Background: Autistic girls have a stronger tendency than boys to mask their autism symptoms in social settings, while also tending to decrease in autism symptom severity more than boys across childhood. This study will try to uncover whether the decrease in severity is genuine or related to a stronger ability to mask autism symptoms, by conducting an innovative comparison between standard autism observation assessment scores with non-social implicit assessments, as well as a camouflage self-report measure.
