Issue 19 of The SEND Practitioner published Sunday 21 May

Issue 19 of The SEND Practitioner published on Sunday and features in-depth interviews with Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and Dr Sarah Hendrickx about autism and its diagnosis.

In this month’s issue, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen discusses how the social pressure on girls to fit in and conform can mask their autism, making it difficult for teachers and practitioners to identify. Dr Sarah Hendrickx also explores the issue of autistic girls ‘hiding in plain sight’, and what she feels are the advantages and disadvantages of the expansion of specialist support for girls. Dr Wenn Lawson draws on his own experience of gender dysphoria and autism, discusses the links between the two conditions and the ways in which he overcame barriers.

Issue 19 also includes an interview with Ruth Deutsch (educational and child psychologist, and co-author of CAP) about the foundations and history of CAP, and how the course has developed since its inception. We also speak to two CAP users, Dr Yehuda Marshall and Deborah Smith (a specialist teacher), and learn how the use of CAP has impacted on their practice and professional lives.

Why the CAP fits! We interview two CAP delegates about the course’s impact on their professional lives

With our upcoming CAP course on the horizon, we were delighted to speak with some of our previous course delegates about how using CAP has benefitted their practice. Dr Yehuda Marshall (consultant clinical psychologist) and Deborah Smith (specialist teacher) discuss cognitive profile analysis, and how the domain structure of CAP has deepened their understanding of a client’s strengths and weaknesses. Head to our People page to read the interviews in their entirety, or find them in the forthcoming issue 19 of The Send Practitioner.
