Mayhew, Emese; Stuttard, Lucy; Beresford, Bryony – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
Valid and reliable tools to measure mental health are a key requirement to developing a robust evidence base on mental health difficulties and autism. There are several reasons why mental health measures developed for the neurotypical population may not be valid and reliable when used with autistic adults. Using data collected from a national…

Bezemer, M. L.; Blijd-Hoogewys, E. M. A.; Meek-Heekelaar, M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
Questionnaires are widely used in autism assessment. However, their psychometric properties are generally not evaluated in clinical practice, and the comparability and applicability of such research is limited because questionnaires are often not simultaneously evaluated. This certainly pertains to predictive values which are highly population and…

Ferrara, Marika; Camia, Michela; Cecere, Valentina; Villata, Virginia; Vivenzio, Nataly; Scorza, Maristella; Padovani, Roberto – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Impairments in structural language and pragmatics are well recognized in different neurodevelopmental disorders, yet in clinical work the discrimination of children with various language difficulties into different diagnostic profile is still a major challenge. Using the CCC-2 questionnaire this study assesses and compares language competences in…

Reardanz, Jenna; Conners, Frances A.; McDonald, Kristina L.; Singh, Nisha – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
In this preliminary study, we examined peer victimization in adolescents with Down syndrome (DS) and how it relates to language and communication skills. We modified the Childrens' Social Experience Questionnaire (Crick and Grotpeter in Dev Psychopathol 8:367-380, 1996) to better suit adolescents with DS by simplifying vocabulary and syntax, using…

Fisher, Marisa H.; Shivers, Carolyn M.; Josol, Cynde K. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Although it is well-known that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are socially vulnerable, the field lacks valid assessments to identify risk factors for victimization. Parents/caregivers of 428 individuals with IDD (ages 12-53) completed the social vulnerability questionnaire (SVQ), a measure developed to assess…

Arnold, Samuel R. C.; Uljarevic, Mirko; Hwang, Ye In; Richdale, Amanda L.; Trollor, Julian N.; Lawson, Lauren P. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Despite the high prevalence of depression and other mental illnesses in autistic adults, screening instruments such as the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) have not been specifically validated in an autistic sample. Using data from two Autism CRC longitudinal studies (n = 581), confirmatory factor analysis supported the two-factor model…

Cassidy, Sarah A.; Bradley, Louise; Cogger-Ward, Heather; Shaw, Rebecca; Bowen, Erica; Glod, Magdalena; Baron-Cohen, Simon; Rodgers, Jacqui – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
We explored the appropriateness and measurement properties of a suicidality assessment tool (SBQ-R) developed for the general population, in autistic adults--a high risk group for suicide. 188 autistic adults and 183 general population adults completed the tool online, and a sub-sample (n = 15) were interviewed while completing the tool.…

Castro, Kamila; Perry, Ingrid Schweigert; Ferreira, Gabriela Pachecho; Marchezan, Josemar; Becker, Michele; Riesgo, Rudimar – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This study aims to translate the Brief Autism Mealtime Behaviour Inventory (BAMBI) questionnaire to Brazilian Portuguese, in order to provide a tool to be used in clinic routine that encourages the evaluation of the feeding behaviour of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The final sample contained 410 participants, the mean age was 9.58…

Houghton, Richard; Monz, Brigitta; Law, Kiely; Loss, Georg; Le Scouiller, Stephanie; de Vries, Frank; Willgoss, Tom – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The Autism impact measure (AIM) is a caregiver-reported questionnaire assessing autism symptom frequency and impact in children, previously shown to have good test-retest reliability, convergent validity and structural validity. This study extended previous work by exploring the AIM's ability to discriminate between 'known-groups' of children, and…

Gender variance (GV) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) frequently co-occur in clinical populations. We investigated GV in association with ASD characteristics in nonclinical children and in children with developmental/mental health diagnoses. In 6-12-year-olds (N = 2445; 51% birth-assigned boys), the Gender Identity Questionnaire for Children…

The objective of this study was to adapt and validate the abbreviated version of the "Autism-Spectrum Quotient" (AQ-Short) in a sample of Spanish native adults. A total of 46 individuals with ASD, 41 ASD-relatives, 17 patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders and 190 non-clinical adults were administered the Spanish version of the…

Rankin, James A.; Tomeny, Theodore S. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Research on siblings of youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) suggests that some phenotypic presentation, known as the broader autism phenotype (BAP), is common among siblings without an ASD diagnosis (e.g., Ruzich et al. in Autism Res 9(6):658-665, 2016). Whereas the symptoms that underlie both ASD and the BAP share commonality, the structure…

Cederlund, Mats – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
In this study the Autism Mental Status Exam (AMSE) was validated towards ICD-10 Autism Spectrum Diagnoses (ASD) based on an interview with the Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders (DISCO-11) with parent(s)/caregiver(s) in a group of 124 children referred for assessment to a clinical assessment unit for pre-school children.…

Hatta, Kyoko; Hosozawa, Mariko; Tanaka, Kyoko; Shimizu, Toshiaki – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Subclinical traits of autism were measured in children with somatic symptom disorder (SSD, n = 28) and compared with age-matched controls (n = 26) using the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) children's version. The KINDL[superscript R] quality of life questionnaire was used to assess functional disability. Although there was no significant group…
