ABSTRACT: Objective: To improve access to diagnostic evaluations for children younger than 3 years with concerns for possible autism spectrum disorder. Methods: A multidisciplinary “arena model” for children younger than 3 years was developed, tested, and implemented over an approximately 2-year period. Arena assessment teams comprised a developmental behavioral pediatrician (DBP), psychologist, and speech language pathologist (SLP). Quality improvement methods were used during the design phase, conducting Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles and collecting feedback from key stakeholders, and during implement...
ABSTRACT: Objective: The primary objective of this study was to describe analgesia administration between neurotypical (NT) individuals and those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosed with appendicitis or long bone fractures in the emergency department (ED). A secondary objective was to compare the rates of complicated appendicitis as a proxy for delayed diagnosis between the groups. Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study using the Pediatric Health Information System database. Study participants were children aged 6 to 18 years with ASD and with an ED visit for appendicitis or fracture between 2004 an...
ABSTRACT: Objective: The development of self-competence and self-efficacy is important to achieving academic, social, and career success. Examining whether performing chores in early elementary school contributes to later self-competence is needed. Methods: We analyzed data from 9971 children participating in the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Kindergarten 2011 cohort entering kindergarten in the United States in 2010 to 2011. During kindergarten, parents reported the frequency with which their child performed chores. In the third grade, children responded to a questionnaire regarding their perceived interest or...
Conclusion: This study extends previous findings by providing support for the preliminary efficacy of PCIT in reducing sleep problems in children with DD and borderline DD and highlighting the role of sleep problems as a factor associated with differential treatment effects in behavioral parenting intervention research.
Conclusion: Infants with gestation-related risks show distinct sleep patterns. We suggest that sleep assessment is included in the follow-up of high-risk infants. Future studies are needed to investigate the predictive value and functional importance of the sleep patterns for infants with gestation-related risks.
ABSTRACT: Objective: To examine whether difficulties in emotional, attention, and peer or social functioning (a proposed “preterm behavioral phenotype”) co-occur within individual children born extremely preterm (EP;
Conclusion: Findings suggest that patients with cancer are doing remarkably well with regard to adjustment. Connectedness with parents and peers mediates the relationship between optimism and psychological adjustment. As such, children with cancer who are identified as experiencing poor adjustment may benefit from interventions to foster connectedness.

Conclusion: Mothers reported significantly earlier bedtimes and longer sleep durations for their toddlers compared with actigraphy, suggesting that objective measures differ from sleep diaries in assessing sleep in toddlers from low-income families. Findings should not be generalized to populations of low-income families without replication.
Conclusion: Without consideration of interaction effects among variables of interest, a substantial gap in the literature persists. Both diet and sleep need to be assessed simultaneously and repetitively in future longitudinal research.
