Although the Child Behavior Checklist 1½-5's 12-item "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders"-Autism Spectrum Problems Scale (formerly called Pervasive Developmental Problems scale) has been used in several studies as an autism spectrum disorder screener, the base rate and stability of its items and its measurement model…

Hatfield, Timothy R.; Brown, Rhonda F.; Giummarra, Melita J.; Lenggenhager, Bigna – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Research over the past three decades has seen a revived interest in the way the human body--and the way in which it is perceived--interacts with aspects of our experience. Consequently, interoception (i.e. the perception of physiological feedback from the body) has recently been shown to be associated with a wide range of cognitive, emotional, and…

Smerbeck, A. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Restricted interests are an established diagnostic symptom of autism spectrum disorder. While there is considerable evidence that these interests have maladaptive consequences, they also provide a range of benefits. This article introduces a new instrument, the Survey of Favorite Interests and Activities, and uses it to examine the nature of…

Rescorla, Leslie A.; Winder-Patel, Breanna M.; Paterson, Sarah J.; Pandey, Juhi; Wolff, Jason J.; Schultz, Robert T.; Piven, Joseph – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
The screening power of the CBCL/1½-5's Withdrawn and "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders"-Pervasive Developmental Problems (DSM-PDP) scales to identify children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at 24 months was tested in a longitudinal, familial high-risk study. Participants were 56 children at high risk for…

Maras, Katie; Gamble, Tim; Brosnan, Mark – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Previous research suggests impaired metacognitive monitoring and mathematics under-achievement in autism spectrum disorder. Within educational settings, metacognitive monitoring is supported through the provision of feedback (e.g. with goal reminders and by explicitly correcting errors). Given the strength of the relationship between…

Pathak, Manina; Bennett, Amanda; Shui, Amy M. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Children with autism spectrum disorder have deficits in adaptive functioning. This study examines the adaptive behavior, its association with cognitive ability, gender, age, and symptom severity in children with autism spectrum disorder. Using data from Autism Treatment Network registry, the adaptive behavior profiles were examined in 2538…

Kelly, Brian; Williams, Stefan; Collins, Sylvie; Mushtaq, Faisal; Mon-Williams, Mark; Wright, Barry; Mason, Dan; Wright, John – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
There has been recent interest in the relationship between socioeconomic status and the diagnosis of autism in children. Studies in the United States have found lower rates of autism diagnosis associated with lower socioeconomic status, while studies in other countries report no association, or the opposite. This article aims to contribute to the…

Donohue, Meghan Rose; Childs, Amber W.; Richards, Megan; Robins, Diana L. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Racial differences in parent report of concerns about their child's development to healthcare providers may contribute to delayed autism spectrum disorder diagnoses in Black children. We tested the hypotheses that compared to White parents, Black parents of children with autism spectrum disorder would report fewer concerns about autism symptoms…

Chetcuti, Lacey; Hudry, Kristelle; Grant, Megan; Vivanti, Giacomo – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
We examined the role of social motivation and motor execution factors in object-directed imitation difficulties in autism spectrum disorder. A series of to-be-imitated actions was presented to 35 children with autism spectrum disorder and 20 typically developing children on an Apple® iPad® by a "socially responsive" or "aloof"…

Saloner, Brendan; Barry, Colleen L. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Almost all states have insurance coverage mandates for childhood autism spectrum disorder treatment, yet little is known about how mandates affect spending and service use. We evaluated a 2011 Kansas law mandating comprehensive coverage of autism spectrum disorder treatments in the State Employee Health Plan. Data were extracted from the Kansas…

Fletcher-Watson, Sue; Larsen, Kenneth; Salomone, Erica – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Engagement with stakeholders is an essential part of the research process. This is particularly the case for early autism research with infant cohorts and their families, where a range of ethical issues are pertinent. Here, we report on a large survey of parents who have a child on the autism spectrum (n = 1040) which specifically probed attitudes…

Sasson, Noah J.; Morrison, Kerrianne E. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
A practical consideration for many intellectually able adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is whether to disclose their diagnostic status or try to mask their autistic characteristics to avoid judgment and discrimination. Here, we assessed first impressions of adults with ASD and typically developing controls (N = 40) made by typically…

Elias, Rebecca; Muskett, Ashley E.; White, Susan W. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Addressing the challenges of adolescents and emerging adults with autism spectrum disorder is crucial to improving the outcomes of these students in the postsecondary setting. Although secondary and postsecondary educators and staff are critical to helping these students access services, there has been little investigation into the perspectives of…

Cooperation is a fundamental human ability that seems to be inversely related to aggressive behaviour in typical development. However, there is no knowledge whether similar association holds for children with autism spectrum disorder. A total of 27 boys with autism spectrum disorder and their gender, age and total score intelligence matched…

Hartley, Calum; Trainer, Alice; Allen, Melissa L. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Previous studies report that minimally verbal children with autism spectrum disorder show impaired picture comprehension when matched to typically developing controls on language comprehension. Here, we compare "both" picture comprehension and picture production abilities in linguistically delayed children with autism spectrum disorder…
