Big Five model and trait emotional intelligence in camouflaging behaviours in autism

This study investigated the association of the five-factor model and trait emotional intelligence (trait EI) with camouflaging behaviours (masking and compensating for autistic characteristics) in a large sample of 278 autistic and 230 typically developing (TD) participants. Participants completed questionnaires assessing autistic traits, big five personality, trait EI, and social camouflaging of autistic traits. Camouflaging was negatively related to extraversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness, while it was positively related to neuroticism. Trait EI was also negatively linked to camouflaging. The differences between autistic and TD participants regarding camouflaging are discussed.Additionally, associations between the dimensions of extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism with autistic traits were found, supporting previous research showing that individuals with higher autistic traits are predisposed to specific personality traits. Trait EI had a negative relationship with autistic traits, suggesting a specific emotional difficulty for individuals with high autistic traits.

Conclusions and implicationsThe current study indicated parental encouragement differences between parents of children with ASD and parents of TD children varied based on the play setting. These results identify a need to examine parental behaviors, especially parental encouragement and parental intrusiveness across various types of play settings. Furthermore, as parents of children with ASD displayed lower parental encouragement in a motor skill-based play setting compared to parents of TD children, future studies are warranted to improve parental encouragement of parents of children with ASD in a motor skill-based play setting.

All Party Parliamentary Group on Autism -Under the landmark Autism Act, alongside other important laws like the Care Act, autistic people in England are entitled to the care and support they need. But this inquiry report, based on a survey of around 11,000 autistic adults people and families, found that not enough has been done locally and nationally to make sure that the Autism Act makes a difference to all autistic people in the country. Progress has been held up because there isn ’t enough understanding of the Act’s duties on councils and the NHS and of how to implement them.ReportNational Autistic Society - press release

This study reviews the literature on reading instruction consistent with the recommendations of the National Reading Panel (NRP; National Institute of Child Health and Human Development,2000) for children with autism spectrum disorder, using the Evaluative Method for Determining Evidence-Based Practices in Autism to assess research quality (Reichow, Volkmar,&Cicchetti,2008). A search of the literature published between 2009 and 2017 identified 10,779 relevant records, of which 19 met inclusion criteria. Studies reported gains in phonics, reading accuracy, reading fluency, and/or reading comprehension skills; however, f...

AbstractIndividuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) may experience greater risk of sexually transmitted infections, higher rates of sexual abuse, and decreased sexual health knowledge, emphasizing the need for accessible, comprehensive sexual health education. The purpose of this scoping review was to identify the extent and nature of sexual health education interventions among individuals with I/DD ages 15 –24 years. Six studies were included in the review. They investigated sexual health interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and mild I/DD, covered a wide range of t...
