AbstractWe aimed at identifying early non-social behavioural indicators that predict later ASD. Likewise, we were interested in the moment in which non-social signs discriminate between children at elevated likelihood for ASD with a later diagnosis of ASD, and children at elevated likelihood for ASD with a typical developmental outcome. In addition, we intended to explore the developmental evolution of children ’s symptomatology over time. A systematic literature search was conducted for longitudinal studies on early non-social behavioural indicators among siblings at elevated likelihood for ASD. The following databa...

Ferreira, Nenad BlauAbstractPsychiatric symptoms are common manifestations in many inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs), ranging from attention deficit, anxiety and mood and behavioral disorders to psychosis. Furthermore, IEMs represent a significant percentage of all autism cases. We reviewed and updated the list of metabolic disorders known to be associated with various psychiatric manifestations and found more than 100 relevant IEMs. This represents the third of a series o...

Publication date: June 2020Source: Meta Gene, Volume 24Author(s): Fatemeh Beiranvandi, Mansoureh Akouchekian, Gholam Reza Javadi, Hossein DarvishAbstractAutism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a highly heritable neurodevelopment disease characterized by impaired social interactions, communication deficits, restricted interests, stereotyped and repetitive behaviors, which results from the interaction between genetic vulnerability and environmental factors. Our study was aimed to explore the association between CNTNAP2 gene polymorphism (rs2710102 C/T) and ENGRAILED-2 (EN2) (rs1861972 A/G) with the risk of autism in the Iranian po...

Smith, Jonathan EmmonsAbstractUsing a stigma-based bullying framework, the current study investigated how (a) disability status was related to bullying-related behaviors when controlling for gender, grade level, and free or reduced lunch status; (b) gender, grade level, and free or reduced lunch status moderated the associations of disability status with bullying-related behaviors; and (c) classification in specific disability categories was associated with bullying-related behaviors...

Conclusion: The proposed method is able to reduce false detections due to user motion and effectively detect arousal states during movement periods. Significance: The results add to the growing evidence supporting the feasibility of wearable technologies for anxiety detection and management in naturalistic settings.

Allan AlldayAbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of systematic instruction combined with a self-directed video prompt to teach text comprehension skills to students with autism spectrum disorder. Participants included four elementary school students with autism spectrum disorder. A multiple probe across participants design was used to evaluate the intervention's effectiveness. Results indicated the intervention was successful for all participants. A...
