Sex differences in restricted repetitive behaviors and interests in children with autism spectrum disorder: an Autism Treatment Network study.
Researchers examined sex differences in clinically identified (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) restricted and repetitive behavior symptoms of age-matched and intelligence quotient-matched female and male children with autism spectrum disorder. Their findings identified key restricted and repetitive behavior similarities and differences among young females and males with autism spectrum disorder and emphasized the need for a deeper understanding of the female autism phenotype.
