Neuroimaging research with diverse children with ASD: Impact of a social story on parent understanding and likelihood of participation
ConclusionThese results suggest that social stories may be effective tools in the informed consent process for promoting parent understanding of neuroimaging procedures, and useful during recruitment to aid parents in determining whether their child with ASD will be successful in a neuroimaging study.
This article presents our clinical perspective on the utility of playf ulness for treating toddlers with ASD.
ConclusionIn alignment with previous findings (Altiere &Von Kluge, 2009), elevated levels of enmeshment were not predictive of poorer outcomes in families of children with ASD. There is a need to critically consider whether behaviors traditionally thought of as “enmeshed” may represent different, more adaptive support strategies for families who have a child with ASD.
Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Mummolo S, Sapio S, Falco A, Vittorini OL, Quinzi V Abstract The aim of this study is to evaluate the success of functional rehabilitation of one dental session in patients with severe disabilities such as severe autism, baby bottle syndrome and severe odontophobia, and to assess how patient compliance pre- and post-intervention changes in moderate sedation. Between the beginning of 2016 and the end of 2018, 20 pedodontic patients with severe odontophobia, severe autism and baby bottle syndrome who needed dental treatment came to our attention. Patients were aged between 3 and 12 years, ...
The study didn't identify a heightened risk for autism per se among boys, but rather a "small" increase in the chance for developing certain autism-related traits by age 3 or 4.

In utero exposure to the chemical phthalate has been linked with autistic traits in young boys, according to an analysis published Wednesday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
Authors: Jaureguiberry MS, Venturino A Abstract The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has risen sharply in the last 30 years, posing a major public health concern and a big emotional and financial challenge for families. While the underlying causes remain to be fully elucidated, evidence shows moderate genetic heritability contribution, but heavy environmental influence. Over the last decades, modern lifestyle has deeply changed our eating, rest, and exercise habits, while exposure to air, water, and food chemical pollution has increased due to indiscriminate use of pesticides, food additives, adjuvant...
WEDNESDAY, Feb. 19, 2020 -- Young boys whose mothers were exposed to chemicals known as phthalates while pregnant may face an increased risk for developing behaviors associated with autism, a new study warns. Phthalates are chemicals found in many...
