School-Based Autism Rates by State: An Analysis of Demographics, Political Leanings, and Differential Identification.

School-Based Autism Rates by State: An Analysis of Demographics, Political Leanings, and Differential Identification. J Autism Dev Disord. 2020 Sep 14;: Authors: Safer-Lichtenstein J, Hamilton J, McIntyre LL Abstract We reviewed federal special education data to determine school-identified prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disability categories by U.S. state. We also examined whether state-level policies, demographic factors, and rates of other eligibility categories are predictive of these state ASD rates. Results indicate that overall, 1 of 81 school-aged children are served under an ASD special education eligibility. State-level demographic factors, such as socioeconomic status and political leanings were highly predictive of rates of ASD. States with higher rates of ASD had lower rates of intellectual and learning disabilities, but higher rates of Other Health Impairment (OHI). PMID: 32926306 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewAttachment is a biological evolutionary system contributing to infant survival. In neurotypical children, secure attachment is critical to healthy brain and organ-system development. Attachment patterns in children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) have not been extensively explored. The purpose of this review is to appraise and summarize the literature examining attachment in children with NDDs.Recent FindingsChildren with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disability (ID) or developmental language disorder (DLD) displayed behavior indicative of secure attachments. Approximately 4...

Abstract Neurodevelopmental disorders, including intellectual disability and autism spectrum disorder, are often caused by de novo autosomal dominant mutations. While mouse models are frequently used to investigate these disorders, the genetic background sometimes affects the appearance or severity of mutant phenotypes. In a previous report, we developed a system to produce de novo heterozygous mutant mice using the Cre-LoxP system without the need to maintain the heterozygous mutant line itself (Takagi et al. 2015). To further verify the applicability of the de novo mutation system in sperm, we used this system t...

Over the last 20 years, the NHS and councils have seen several policy and legislative changes aimed at supporting and improving the lives of people with a learning disability and/or autism through the promotion of rights, empowerment, prevention, choice and control and independence. But, despite these initiatives, incidents of abuse and ill-treatment in residential settings and examples of health inequalities for people with a learning disability and/or autism remain. We also know that gaps in both universal and early help provision can exacerbate the need for more costly crisis or specialist provision for a person who cou...
