As part of that transition, her percussion studio at Plano Senior had their end-of-the-year pool party yesterday, an annual event that concludes with awards, remembrances of the graduating seniors by her percussion director and a round-the-room sharing and appreciation by all the students in the class.The final award given is a kind of spirit award, but more than that. It ’s named after a former student, one who brought so much enthusiasm and positivity to the band and had such a deep effect on ...

Zar, Kerry J. Ressler, Joseph D. Buxbaum, Dan J. Stein Prenatal exposure to maternal stress and depression has been identified as a risk factor for adverse behavioral and neurodevelopmental outcomes in early childhood. However, the molecular mechanisms through which maternal psychopathology shapes offspring development remain poorly understood.

We ’ve discovered  an interesting “Catch-22. It applies to Minnesota but may be common elsewhere.In MN a student entering a state funded transition program cannot do courses at a community college — even if they pay for them directly and even if they were doing them while in High School through Minnesota’s PSEO program.The reason is that Community Colleges require a High School diploma, but transition programs require that a studentnot have a High School diploma [1]. While in High School students may attend Community Colleges for advanced courses through programs like PSEO (MN), but not after f...

(BMJ. 2017;359:j4273) Previous research has suggested that autism spectrum disorders (ASD) may develop antenatally. Maternal nutrition affects neurodevelopment and could be a factor affecting the risk of developing ASD. Population-based studies, however, have produced conflicting results. Studies from the United States and Norway found that maternal folic acid supplementation around the time of conception and during early pregnancy decreased the risk of ASD. A Danish study, though, did not find an association between folic acid or multivitamin supplementation and the risk of ASD. The aim of this population-based cohort st...

(BMJ. 2017;358:j3668) Antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are prescribed during pregnancy and are considered safe. Recent studies have raised concerns regarding the long-term neurodevelopmental effects, such as autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, of these medications on the offspring. However, gaps exist in the knowledge of antidepressant use during pregnancy and risk of psychiatric disorders in the offspring. This population-based cohort study was performed to investigate the association between in utero antidepressant exposure and overall risk of psychiatric disorders in children.
