McDonnell, Christina G.; Bradley, Catherine C.; Kanne, Stephen M.; Lajonchere, Clara; Warren, Zachary; Carpenter, Laura A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Differential diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is challenging, and uncertainty regarding a child's diagnosis may result in under-identification or prolonged diagnostic pathways. The current study examined diagnostic certainty, or how sure clinicians were that their diagnosis was accurate, among 478 toddler and preschool-aged children…

Roberts, Cristine A.; Smith, Kevin C.; Sherman, Ashley K. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have sleep disorders. Face-to-face (F2F) sessions have empowered parents to help their child sleep. Our goal was whether online technologies could provide similar improvements in children's sleep while also improving parents' quality of life. Identical programs were taught in two sessions to F2F…

Papadopoulos, Chris; Lodder, Annemarie; Constantinou, Georgina; Randhawa, Gurch – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Families play a crucial role in determining the mental health of the autistic individual(s) they are caring for. However, the stigma associated with autism can impair caregiver health. To investigate this, empirical evidence pertaining to stigma's impact on informal caregivers' mental health was systematically reviewed. All twelve included studies…

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder under-diagnosed in adults. To date, no consistent evidence of alterations in brain structure has been reported in adults with ASD and few studies were conducted at that age. We analyzed structural magnetic resonance imaging data from 167 high functioning adults with ASD and 195 controls.…

Greenslade, Kathryn J.; Utter, Elizabeth A.; Landa, Rebecca J. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Little empirical evidence exists about school-age pragmatic communication or predictors in siblings at heightened familial risk for ASD (HR) and low-risk (LR) controls. The "Pragmatic Rating Scale-School-Age" (Landa unpublished) was scored for 49 HR siblings and 18 LR controls at 8-12 years. Social-communication and language measures…

Silva, Samuel; Teixeira, António – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Developing technologies to support individuals with ASD is a growing field of research facing numerous challenges. First, while the individual with ASD is central, the motivations of others, such as parents, are often taken as the motivations of the individual. Second, the desirable cross-disciplinary pollination for improved intervention can…

Shapira, Stuart K.; Tian, Lin H.; Aylsworth, Arthur S.; Elias, Ellen R.; Hoover-Fong, Julie E.; Meeks, Naomi J. L.; Souders, Margaret C.; Tsai, Anne C.-H.; Zackai, Elaine H.; Alexander, Aimee A.; Yeargin-Allsopp, Marshalyn; Schieve, Laura A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The presence of multiple dysmorphic features in some children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) might identify distinct ASD phenotypes and serve as potential markers for understanding causes and prognoses. To evaluate dysmorphology in ASD, children aged 3-6 years with ASD and non-ASD population controls (POP) from the Study to Explore Early…

Mazurek, Micah O.; Dovgan, Kristen; Neumeyer, Ann M.; Malow, Beth A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The chronicity of sleep disturbance and its relation to co-occurring symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are not well understood. The current study examined longitudinal relations among sleep and co-occurring symptoms in a large well-characterized sample of 437 children with ASD assessed at baseline and follow-up (M =…

Yingling, Marissa E.; Bell, Bethany A.; Hock, Robert M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Health coverage of early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) for children with autism spectrum disorder is expanding. Yet there is no longitudinal research on patterns of or inequities in utilization of EIBI. We integrated state administrative records with Medicaid and Census data for children enrolled in an EIBI Medicaid waiver (N = 730) to…

Ang, Karen Qian Ping; Loh, Pek Ru – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Research has supported the notion that gender plays a significant role in coping and mental health outcome among parents of children with ASD. The current study aims to examine gender role in the relationship between mental health outcome and coping in parents of children with ASD in Singapore. This study involved 97 fathers and 106 mothers of…

This study examined the potential of the short form of the Quantitative Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (Q-CHAT-10) to identify autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in a high-risk sibling cohort. High-risk (HR; siblings of children diagnosed with ASD) and low-risk (LR; no family history of ASD) toddlers were assessed prospectively at 18 and 24 months…

Sánchez-García, Ana B.; Galindo-Villardón, Purificación; Nieto-Librero, Ana B.; Martín-Rodero, Helena; Robins, Diana L. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Great efforts focus on early detection of autism spectrum disorder, although some scientists and policy-makers have questioned early universal screening. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the different screening tools. Several electronic databases were used to identify published studies. A Bayesian model was…
