1.10 a literature review: do dsm-5 severity indicators for eating disorders apply to children and adolescents?
Recent studies reflect that nearly 13 percent of adolescent girls experience symptoms consistent with DSM-5 feeding and eating disorders (FED). Young men are also affected but are underrepresented in studies and in clinical presentations. Two of the most common FED —anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN)—now have severity specifiers associated with them. For AN, the severity is based on the BMI of the patient at the time of diagnosis. For BN, the severity is based on the frequency of compensatory behaviors.

1.9 the psychometric properties of the paternal feeding and play scales
Research has increasingly resorted to standardized observational procedures to evaluate a child ’s developmental trajectories. In line with a transactional model of development, early interpersonal experience has proven to be crucial in the child’s capacity for affect and behavioral regulation. Traditionally, researchers have focused on mother–infant interaction. More recently, several s tudies have emphasized the value of the quality of father–infant early interactions to comprehend how fathers’ interactions may contribute to a child’s cognitive and affective development.

1.13 what do we do about a crisis? perspectives of clinicians working with patients with asd and their parents
Although individuals with ASD have a high incidence of co-occurring mental health disorders, these illnesses can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Young people with ASD, similar to others experiencing behavioral crisis, access local mental health services, including community mental health centers, as well as emergency and inpatient services. However, families of children with ASD report that they are dissatisfied with their emergency department (ED) experiences and that the health care professionals in the EDs may feel ill-equipped to manage patients with behavioral presentations, specifically those with ASD.

Joint attention, the coordinated orienting of 2 individuals toward an object, has been linked to later language capabilities in children with typical development and with ASD. Early social motivation —the disposition to preferentially orient to social stimuli and to seek, like, and maintain social engagement—also has been hypothesized to promote language development. However, no prior research has examined whether social motivation and joint attention are necessary for the emergence of speci fic language abilities.
