Cummins, Clare; Pellicano, Elizabeth; Crane, Laura – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Limited research has examined puberty in autistic girls, yet alone those who are minimally verbal and with additional intellectual disabilities. In this study, ten parents and ten educators were interviewed about their views and experiences of supporting these girls through puberty. Results demonstrated that many parents had concerns prior to the…

Falk, Dean – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Recent allegations that pediatrician Hans Asperger legitimized Nazi policies, including forced sterilization and child euthanasia, are refuted with newly translated and chronologically-ordered information that takes into account Hitler's deceptive 'halt' to the T4 euthanasia program in 1941. It is highly unlikely that Asperger was aware of the T4…

Roux, Anne M.; Rast, Jessica E.; Shattuck, Paul T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Employment outcomes for transition-age youth with autism spectrum disorder (TAY-ASD) following Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) services declined between 2002 and 2011; although a few states showed significant progress. We examined inter-state variation in VR service use and outcomes among TAY-ASD in 2014-2016, finding significant differences in the…

Charlton, Anna S.; Smith, Isaac C.; Mazefsky, Carla A.; White, Susan W. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Deficits in emotion regulation (ER) are commonly observed in individuals with ASD and may contribute to elevated rates of psychiatric comorbidity. The objective of this study was to understand the relationship between ER (self-and caregiver-reported) and clinician-assigned mood and anxiety disorders in emerging adults with ASD (n = 27).…

Dissanayake, Cheryl; Richdale, Amanda; Kolivas, Natasha; Pamment, Lindsay – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
The study examined the association between autism traits and parenting when raising a typically developing (TD) child, and differences in parenting needs between parents with high and low traits. Fifty-eight parents with a blood relative with Autism (who happened to be an offspring with ASD in all cases) and a TD child completed the Autism…

Thomason, Molly Mishler; McCarthy, John; Goin-Kochel, Robin P.; Dowell, Lauren R.; Schaaf, Christian P.; Berry, Leandra N. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Truncating variants of the "MAGEL2" gene, one of the protein-coding genes within the Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) critical region on chromosome 15q11, cause Schaaf-Yang syndrome (SYS)--a neurodevelopmental disorder that shares several clinical features with PWS. The current study sought to characterize the neurobehavioral phenotype of SYS…

Bitsika, Vicki; Arnold, Wayne A.; Sharpley, Christopher F. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
To investigate possible correlates of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) in young males with ASD, a test of the mediation effects of sensory features (SF) upon the association between ASD symptoms and GAD was conducted with 150 males aged 6 to 18 years. GAD data were obtained from parents of the boys and from the boys themselves; SF and ASD data…

Lei, Jiedi; Calley, Steph; Brosnan, Mark; Ashwin, Chris; Russell, Ailsa – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Applying to university can be an anxiety-provoking time for many autistic students, though enrolment can be increased by actively involving them in transition planning. We provide an evaluation of a transition to university pilot programme (Autism Summer School) for autistic students (16-19 years) who are seeking to apply/attend university. The…

Yamashiro, Amy; Curtin, Suzanne; Vouloumanos, Athena – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Human infants show a robust preference for speech over many other sounds, helping them learn language and interact with others. Lacking a preference for speech may underlie some language and social-pragmatic difficulties in children with ASD. But, it is unclear how an early speech preference supports later language and social-pragmatic abilities.…

The Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers-revised/follow-up (M-CHAT-R/F) was developed to reduce the number of cases requiring telephone verification. The aim of this study was to validate a Spanish version of the M-CHAT-R/F in the Spanish public health system. The M-CHAT-R/F was translated, culturally adapted, and then administered to 6625…

Luyster, Rhiannon J.; Arunachalam, Sudha – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
We explored whether children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) learn new nouns from overheard speech. Thirteen children (4-5 years) with ASD participated in an Addressed condition, in which they were directly taught a novel label (e.g., "toma") for one of three novel objects, and an Overheard condition, in which the objects and label…

Hu, Xiaoyi; Lee, Gabrielle T.; Tsai, Yu-Ting; Yang, Yang; Cai, Su – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
This paper compared the effectiveness and efficiency of using computer-assisted instruction (CAI) and teacher-implemented instruction (TII) to teach visual matching skills to students with autism spectrum disorder and/or other developmental disabilities. Four school-aged students participated in this study with an alternating treatment design. The…

Vause, Tricia; Jaksic, Heather; Neil, Nicole; Frijters, Jan C.; Jackiewicz, Grazyna; Feldman, Maurice – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience obsessions and compulsions similar to those specified in "DSM-5" for obsessive compulsive disorder yet little controlled research exists on treating these behaviours. Thirty-seven children (7-13 years old) were randomly assigned to a 9-week functional behavior-based cognitive…

Carruthers, Sophie; Kent, Rachel; Hollocks, Matthew J.; Simonoff, Emily – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Anxiety is a prevalent and impairing co-morbidity among individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet assessment measures, including screening tools, are seldom validated with autism samples. We explored the psychometric properties of the child and parent reports of the Spence Children's Anxiety Scale (SCAS) and the Screen for Anxiety…
