The present study examined whether fundamental sensory functions such as temporal processing and multisensory integration are related to autistic traits in the general population. Both a narrower temporal window (TW) for simultaneous perception, as measured by a temporal order judgement task, and a reduced ability to engage in multisensory…

Chez, Michael; Kile, Shawn; Lepage, Christopher; Parise, Carol; Benabides, Bobbie; Hankins, Andrea – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Prior studies have demonstrated successful irritability treatment using dopaminergic antagonists in autistic patients. The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the effect of dextromethorphan/quinidine (DM/Q) in autistic adults (18-60 years of age). This was a randomized, blinded, crossover, study of 14 patients randomized to DM/Q or a placebo…

Fuller, Elizabeth A.; Kaiser, Ann P. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
This meta-analysis examined the effects of early interventions on social communication outcomes for young children with autism spectrum disorder. A systematic review of the literature included 1442 children (mean age 3.55 years) across 29 studies. The overall effect size of intervention on social communication outcomes was significant (g = 0.36).…

Toseeb, Umar; McChesney, Gillian; Oldfield, Jeremy; Wolke, Dieter – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Sibling bullying is associated with various psychosocial difficulties. We investigated this in 231 individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and 8180 without ASD between middle childhood (age 11 years) and early adolescence (age 14 years). On the whole, self-reported sibling bullying decreased from middle childhood to early adolescence.…

Although informed consent is critical for all research, there is increased ethical responsibility as individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) become the focus of more clinical trials. This study examined decisional capacity for informed consent to clinical trials in individuals with fragile X syndrome (FXS). Participants…

Crane, Laura; Wilcock, Rachel; Maras, Katie L.; Chui, Wing; Marti-Sanchez, Carmen; Henry, Lucy A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Research suggests that autistic children can provide accurate and forensically useful eyewitness evidence. However, members of a jury also rely on non-verbal behaviours when judging the credibility of a witness, and this could determine the verdict of a case. We presented mock jurors with videos (from an experimental study) of one of two child…

Scott, Jessica A.; Hansen, Sarah Grace – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Although a sizable minority of students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) are also diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there is little research examining teachers' feelings of aptitude for working with these students, nor the instructional strategies used with this population. This study reports results from a researcher-designed…

The elucidation of odour awareness in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is important. We compared the odour awareness of young children with ASD with those of typical development (TD) children using the Children's Olfactory Behavior in Everyday Life (COBEL) questionnaire, which is a self-report measure that mainly assesses odour…

Kerub, Orly; Haas, Eric J.; Meiri, Gal; Davidovitch, Nadav; Menashe, Idan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Systematic screening of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can improve early diagnosis of ASD. We compared the efficacy of two ASD screening methods, the Global Developmental Screening (GDS), and the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers-Revised, with Follow-Up (M-CHAT/F) in 1591 toddlers of ages 18-36 months from 35 government-funded clinics in…

Coon, Jodi C.; Rapp, John T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
One reason for treating stereotypic behavior is that it may negatively impact how others perceive the individual displaying the behavior, thus impeding social interactions; however, few studies have directly evaluated this possibility. As a first step toward testing this position, participants (college students) in Study 1 watched 5-min video…

Thurman, Angela John; Hoyos Alvarez, Cesar – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
In the present study, language performance on standardized assessments (e.g., overall verbal performance, receptive and expressive vocabulary) and spontaneous language produced in play was compared between preschool-aged boys with autism spectrum disorder ([subscript n]ASD, n = 25) and boys with fragile X syndrome (FXS, n = 16). At the…

Vaughan, Sarah; McGlone, Francis; Poole, Helen; Moore, David J. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Sensory abnormalities in autism has been noted clinically, with pain insensitivity as a specified diagnostic criterion. However, there is limited research using psychophysically robust techniques. Thirteen adults with ASD and 13 matched controls completed an established quantitative sensory testing (QST) battery, supplemented with measures of pain…
