Most children with autism are diagnosed before they are 5 years old. But for some kids, particularly high achieving ones, the signs are subtle and parents don’t realize their child has the disorder. In this episode, LA-based licensed therapist Gina Kilberg, who specializes in helping kids with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and their parents, shares some of the nuanced signs of the autistic adolescent. Gina, who has an autistic child herself, also addresses some of the complexities of diagnosing and treating teens with ASD.
