A working group of the IACC is being established to address health issues that affect individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and identify opportunities to improve their health outcomes. The workshop, which will be open to the public, will include presentations by 7-8 experts in the health issues being addressed at the meeting, a public comment period, lunch, and a discussion period exploring various recommendations to improve health outcomes among individuals with ASD. The presentations and discussion will form the basis of a subsequent white paper or other type of written document.For more information go tohttps:...

ValeriAbstractIndividuals with Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have difficulties in the recollection of past experiences (Episodic Memory). Accumulating evidence suggests that they might have also difficulties in the ability to imagine potential future scenarios (Episodic Future Thinking, EFT) and in narrative generation skills. This investigation aimed to determine 1) whether impairments of EFT can be identified in a large cohort of children ...

(University of Virginia Health System) The mother's microbiome, the collection of microscopic organisms that live inside us, determines the risk of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in her offspring, new research from the UVA School of Medicine shows. The work raises the possibility we could prevent autism by altering expectant moms' diets.

Since the 1990 ’s ion channel genes have been identified and mutations in these genes have been reported in several neuropsychiatric diseases. Voltage-gated sodium channels are important for generation and propagation of signals, while three genes (SCN1A, SCN2A, SCN3A) are highly expressed in neurons and glia (I mbirici et al, 2013). SCN1A gene with other genes form a 1.4-Mb SCN cluster on chromosome 2q24.3. Several reports indicate that mutations of the SCN1A gene are responsible for certain epilepsy syndromes (Dravet-syndrome being the most relevant Wolf et al, 2006), that are associat...

AbstractThe aim of this report is to present a tentative clinical and pathophysiological approach to diseases affecting the neuronal presynaptic terminal, with a major focus on synaptic vesicles (SVs). Diseases are classified depending on which step of the neurobiology of the SV is predominantly affected: (1) biogenesis of vesicle precursors in the neuronal soma; (2) transport along the axon; (3) vesicle cycle at the presynaptic terminal (exocytosis –endocytosis cycle, with the main purpose of neurotransmitter release). Given that SVs have been defined as individual organelles, we highlight the link between the biolo...

AbstractPromoting self-determination (SD) in youth with disabilities is positively related to better post-secondary outcomes, such as employment and independence. Despite extensive research into SD and quality of life (QoL) for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the relation between the two has not been examined for young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) without intellectual disability (ID). The aim of this pilot study was to examine the relationship between two complementary measures of SD, namely the Arc ’s Self-Determination Scale (Wehmeyer and Kelchner1995) and the AIR Self-Determi...
