In addition to the live webcast, we are excited to announce that we are hoping to present our inaugural 2-day intensive *Masterclass on Autistic Girls & Women* with Barb Cook *live in Brisbane on 14th-15th October*

This intensive two-day masterclass has been designed to increase participants knowledge and skills in how to conduct a diagnostic assessment for a girl or woman to determine whether they have autism, including measurement of camouflaging, comorbidity, differential diagnosis, and use of and adaptations to conventional psychometric assessment.

During day one, participants will know how to conduct a diagnostic assessment with a girl or woman to determine the presence or absence of autism using a range of instruments and apply that information for greater understanding and support at home, school and work.

During day two, participants will be able to assess and understand the common clinical issues for autistic girls and women, how these can be expressed and maintained, and to design an intervention programme for home, school or the workplace, using individual or group therapy.
