Stuyvenberg, Corri L.; Brown, Shaaron E.; Inamdar, Ketaki; Evans, Megan; Hsu, Lin-ya; Rolin, Olivier; Harbourne, Regina T.; Westcott McCoy, Sarah; Lobo, Michele A.; Koziol, Natalie A.; Dusing, Stacey C. – Grantee Submission, 2021
Therapies for children with cerebral palsy (CP) often fail to address essential components of early rehabilitation: intensity, child initiation, and an embodied approach. Sitting Together And Reaching To Play (START-Play) addresses these issues while incorporating intensive family involvement to maximize therapeutic dosage. While START-Play was…

Owusu, Samuel Asiedu; Owusu, Rebecca Asiedu; Hampshire, Kate – Child Care in Practice, 2021
As work practices and living arrangements change, many mothers, who are often primary child caregivers, have to make some decisions as they try to balance childcare with paid work. Increasingly, childcare is shared between parents and other caregivers. However, little is known, especially in Ghana, about the childcare practices of mothers and…

Kuzmenko, Tatiana; Sharma, Ashwarya; Willette, Demian A. – American Biology Teacher, 2021
Hands-on, inquiry-based laboratory activities are excellent opportunities to introduce first-year undergraduate students to the lab environment and to catalyze new interest in topics they may not yet know or be as enthusiastic about studying. We describe a multisession introductory laboratory activity that couples the research areas of medicinal…

Harben, Alyssa L.; Kashy, Deborah A.; Esfahanian, Shiva; Liu, Lanqing; Bix, Laura; Becker, Mark W. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2021
Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs have many benefits but also carry risks, such as adverse drug reactions, which are more prevalent in older adults. Because these products do not require the oversight of a physician or pharmacist, labeling plays a key role in communicating information required for their safe and effective use. Research suggests that…

Owens, David C.; Sadler, Troy D.; Friedrichsen, Patricia – Research in Science Education, 2021
The identification of high-leverage teaching practices that can be improved through targeted practice should contribute to the enhancement of teachers' facilitation of instruction and improve student learning outcomes. Researchers have begun to identify subject-specific teaching practices that are expected to enhance science teaching specifically.…

DeAngelis, Corey A.; Dills, Angela K. – School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2021
School choice allows families to choose schools that are more suited to their children. These choices may affect non-academic outcomes, including students' mental health. We empirically examine the relationship between school choice and mental health using two methods. First, we use difference-in-differences to estimate the effects of state…

Goltz, Jeffrey; Ivanov, Iliyan; Rice, Timothy R. – International Journal of Developmental Disabilities, 2021
The purpose of this review was to understand the impact of second generation antipsychotic (SGA)-induced weight gain on youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), including the clinical evidence, mechanisms, monitoring guidelines, and treatments. To achieve this, multiple MEDLINE/PUBMED and Google database searches were performed and analyzed…

Hayes, Catherine; Eley, Charlotte; Brown, Carla; Syeda, Rowshonara; Verlander, Neville Q.; Hann, Magda; McNulty, Cliodna – Health Education Journal, 2021
Objective: e-Bug is a teaching resource that addresses the UK 5-year National Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that pledges to work with educators and local authorities to ensure young people understand infection prevention and control (IPC) and AMR. This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and acceptability of the e-Bug…

Nikolakopoulou, Adriani; Mavridis, Dimitris; Chiocchia, Virginia; Papakonstantinou, Theodoros; Furukawa, Toshi A.; Salanti, Georgia – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Background: Network meta-analysis (NMA) produces complex outputs as many comparisons between interventions are of interest. The estimated relative treatment effects are usually displayed in a forest plot or in a league table and several ranking metrics are calculated and presented. Methods: In this article, we estimate relative treatment effects…

Wink, Logan K.; Reisinger, Debra L.; Horn, Paul; Shaffer, Rebecca C.; O'Brien, Kaela; Schmitt, Lauren; Dominick, Kelli R.; Pedapati, Ernest V.; Erickson, Craig A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
Dysregulation of glutamate neurotransmission plays a critical role in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) pathophysiology and is a primary target for core deficit research treatment trials. The mechanism of action of ketamine has striking overlap with the theory of ASD as a disorder of synaptic communication and neuronal networks. This two-dose,…

Ulferts, Gregory W.; Cannon, Nicholas J.; Howard, Terry L. – Research in Higher Education Journal, 2021
This research seeks to describe the continuing predicament of R&D funding in the U.S. and to provide support for a return to higher R&D spending as a proportion of GDP to maintain American leadership in innovation. Historically, government investment has funded most foundational scientific research leading to technological advances in…

There are currently no approved pharmacological treatments to improve social reciprocity and limit repetitive and rigid behaviors in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We describe the design of two Phase III studies evaluating the efficacy/safety of bumetanide oral liquid formulation in ASD. These are international, multicenter, randomized,…

Seo, Michael; Furukawa, Toshi A.; Veroniki, Areti Angeliki; Pillinger, Toby; Tomlinson, Anneka; Salanti, Georgia; Cipriani, Andrea; Efthimiou, Orestis – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Network meta-analysis (NMA) can be used to compare multiple competing treatments for the same disease. In practice, usually a range of outcomes is of interest. As the number of outcomes increases, summarizing results from multiple NMAs becomes a nontrivial task, especially for larger networks. Moreover, NMAs provide results in terms of relative…

Luo, Yan; Chaimani, Anna; Furukawa, Toshi A.; Kataoka, Yuki; Ogawa, Yusuke; Cipriani, Andrea; Salanti, Georgia – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
It is often challenging to present the available evidence in a timely and comprehensible manner. We aimed to visualize the evolution of evidence about antidepressants for depression by conducting cumulative network meta-analyses (NMAs) and to examine whether it could have helped the selection of optimal drugs. We built a Shiny web application that…
