|Concealment centered model
- A patient care model that gained popular usage in the 1950s. In this model, parents are used to quickly decide on a gender assignment for their intersex baby, under the assumption that the child would identify with whichever gender their parents raised them as. If a child later deviated from the assigned gender, parents were encouraged to verbally and physically "correct" the child and enforce gender norms. In practice, this resulted in life-altering, unnecessary genital surgeries, irreversible hormone treatments, and dishonesty on the parent's part. A patient-centered model, in which the intersex child is allowed to grow up and make their own choices regarding their gender and surgical option, is now preferred.
