Differences in motivation during adolescence relative to childhood and adulthood in autism was tested in a cross-sectional study. 156 Typically developing individuals and 79 individuals with autism ages 10-30 years of age completed a go/nogo task with social and non-social cues. To assess age effects, linear and quadratic models were used.…

Pearson, Jamie N.; Traficante, Amanda L.; Denny, Lauren M.; Malone, Kayla; Codd, Evadine – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
In North Carolina (NC), there are many resources designed to support the needs of children with autism and their families, and yet a troubling gap in underserved families' access to those services. To address this gap, the Meeting FACES workshop was designed to: (a) provide an opportunity for parents, educators, and service providers to build…

Hong, Minha; Lee, Sang Min; Park, Saengryeol; Yoon, Seok-Jun; Kim, Young-Eun; Oh, In-Hwan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is increasing worldwide. We investigated the economic burden of ASD in South Korea using a nationally representative data source. The direct medical and non-medical costs, and indirect costs resulting from ASD were estimated. The total prevalence was 5.04 (per 100,000) in 2008, and 10.97 in 2015.…

Cruz-Torres, Elisa; Duffy, Mary Louise; Brady, Michael P.; Bennett, Kyle D.; Goldstein, Peggy – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
The use of technological devices has proven to be effective and efficient for the delivery of videos aimed at promoting daily living skills (DLS) among individuals with autism spectrum disorder. As technology advances, devices have become more portable and, ultimately, accessible to caregivers. There are relatively few studies that have examined…

McDaniel, Jena; Yoder, Paul; Estes, Annette; Rogers, Sally J. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
To identify valid measures of vocal development in young children with autism spectrum disorder in the early stages of language learning, we evaluated the convergent validity, divergent validity, and sensitivity to change (across 12 months) of two measures of vocal communication and two measures of vocal complexity through conventional coding of…

Habayeb, Serene; Dababnah, Sarah; John, Aesha; Rich, Brendan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Research on families' experiences raising children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is limited in minority ethnic and cultural groups, such as the Arab American community. Twenty Arab American caregivers raising children with ASD completed online questionnaires regarding their experiences with stigma and acculturation. Nine participants…

This study investigated health-related QoL (HRQoL) and care-related quality of life (CarerQol) in clinically referred children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and their primary and secondary caregivers. The EuroQol five-dimensional (EQ-5D) and the CarerQol questionnaires were used to respectively measure health-related QoL and care-related…

Lee, Gabrielle T.; Hu, Xiaoyi; Liu, Yanhong; Zou, Chouyun; Cheng, Xia; Zhao, Qi; Huang, Jingjing – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of intraverbal prompts on response diversity and novelty in intraverbals posed to children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The intraverbal prompts involving function, feature, and class (FFC) of an item were used in the training of three questions requiring multiple responses. Two Chinese…

Charbonneau, Geneviève; Bertone, Armando; Véronneau, Marie; Girard, Simon; Pelland, Maxime; Mottron, Laurent; Lepore, Franco; Collignon, Olivier – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Although impairment in sensory integration is suggested in the autism spectrum (AS), empirical evidences remain equivocal. We assessed the integration of low-level visual and tactile information within and across modalities in AS and typically developing (TD) individuals. TD individuals demonstrated increased redundancy gain for cross-modal…

Burghoorn, Floor; Dingemanse, Mark; van Lier, Rob; van Leeuwen, Tessa M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Synaesthesia is highly prevalent in autism spectrum disorder. We assessed the relation between the degree of autistic traits (Autism Spectrum Quotient, AQ) and the degree of synaesthesia in a neurotypical population, and hypothesized both are related to a local bias in visual perception. A positive correlation between total AQ scores and the…

Rose, Veronica; Paynter, Jessica; Vivanti, Giacomo; Keen, Deb; Trembath, David – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Comprehensive interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often incorporate augmentative and alternative communication (AAC); however, variability in outcomes exists even among children who access similar intervention. This study investigated predictors of expressive language change for 48 children with ASD aged 31 to 67 months…

People punish transgressors with different intensity depending if they are members of their group or not. We explore this in a cross-sectional analytical study with paired samples in children with developmental disorders who watched two videos and expressed their opinion. In Video-1, a football-player from the participant's country scores a goal…

This two-site randomized waitlist-control study (n = 96 mother-child dyads) examined the efficacy of a psychoeducation program as compared to usual care to empower Latina mothers and improve their confidence in and use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for their children with ASD. A secondary aim was to improve child outcomes. Compared to control…

Shindler, A. E.; Hill-Yardin, E. L.; Petrovski, S.; Bishop, N.; Franks, A. E. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
This study investigated genetic biomarkers for gastrointestinal dysfunction symptoms in order to provide further information on the genetic risk for GI dysfunction associated with autism. The single nucleotide polymorphisms of sixty participants with autism and/or gastrointestinal dysfunction were analyzed. The autism group had a moderate…

Hawks, Zoë; Constantino, John N.; Weichselbaum, Claire; Marrus, Natasha – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Motor impairment is common in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and, as such, a potential target for interventions to improve adaptive functioning. This study investigated motor skill acquisition in children with ASD (n = 15, 12 males; ages 7-16 years) during iCan Bike Camp, a 1-week, community-based intervention (5 × 75-min sessions) to teach…
