Supporting & Caring for Transgender Children [downloadable]
The American Academy of Pediatrics supports policies that are gender-affirming for children – an approach that is supported by other key professional organizations.
In 2016, the AAP joined with other organizations to produce the document, Supporting & Caring for Transgender Children, “a guide for community members and allies to ensure that transgender young people are affirmed, respected, and able to thrive.”
Topics covered include:
- terms used to refer to transgender identity
- sexual orientation
- gender dysphoria
- gender transition
- developmental stages
- mental health problems that may be caused by rejection, victimization and stigma
