Many parents of transgender children allow their children to socially transition, or present as the other sex, in schools. This session will inform psychologists about how to assist schools in devising suitable accommodations for these students. Professional literature on development and treatment of gender identity disorder will be reviewed.
1. Develop a common vocabulary for understanding the experiences of these children.
2. Review the processes of typical and atypical gender development.
3. Review current literature and perspectives on transgender and gender non-conforming children as well as the role of school psychologists who work with these students.
