Welcome back to another masterclass episode! If you haven’t listened to the prior masterclasses, these episodes are a little different than typical interviews. They are case presentations with experts in our field when we go through the history, data, and feedback sessions for specific clients.

Dr. Donna Henderson, guest from our second-most downloaded podcast episode EVER (episode 119), is back with a masterclass on an assessment with an autistic adolescent girl. Our field is currently abuzz with discussion around autistic females, and Donna has been an influential voice in the collaborative conversation over the past few years.

  1. Although I have retired after working in school neuropsychology for over 10 years, I could not resist listening to Donna’s presentation here. I had in the past consulted with her on a couple of cases and found her to be quite encouraging, inspiring, and knowledgeable. This podcast, however, tied up numerous loose ends in my understanding of autism in adolescent girls. Taking us through the case of Annie was extremely enlightening and worthwhile. I am grateful for the time and effort you both made to bring this important information to our professional community. Congratulations on a fabulous job!

  2. This talk was phenomenal!
    I particularly liked the conversation about context blindness and I found the review of Gail’s feedback approach super helpful. It is making me rethink how to provide this feedback myself.
    I am wondering whether Gail shared her one sheet review of symptoms reported across contexts. If so, where can I find it?
