Davis, Matthew A. Cody; Spriggs, Amy; Rodgers, Alexis; Campbell, Jonathan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Deficits in social skills are often exhibited in individuals with comorbid Down syndrome (DS) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and there is a paucity of research to help guide intervention for this population. In the present study, a multiple probe study across behaviors, replicated across participants, assessed the effectiveness of…

Ring, Melanie; Gaigg, Sebastian B.; Altgassen, Mareike; Barr, Peter; Bowler, Dermot M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) present difficulties in forming relations among items and context. This capacity for relational binding is also involved in spatial navigation and research on this topic in ASD is scarce and inconclusive. Using a computerised version of the Morris Water Maze task, ASD participants showed particular…

Sasson, Noah J.; Morrison, Kerrianne E.; Pinkham, Amy E.; Faso, Daniel J.; Chmielewski, Michael – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Social cognitive impairments in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are well-documented, yet little research has examined whether ASD is also characterized by difficulties in meta-perception, or the ability to gauge how one is perceived. In this study, ASD and TD adults (N = 22) largely did not differ on the self-perception of their personality traits…

Lever, Anne G.; Geurts, Hilde M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) characteristics seem to abate over time, but whether this protracts until late adulthood is largely unknown. We cross-sectionally investigated self- and other-reported ASD characteristics of adults with (ASD: N[subscript max-self] = 237, N[subscript max-other] = 130) and without ASD (COM: N[subscript max-self] = 198,…

Grootscholten, Inge A. C.; van Wijngaarden, Bob; Kan, Cornelis C. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Primary caregivers experience consequences from being in close contact to a person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study used the Involvement Evaluation Questionnaire to explore the level of consequences of 104 caregivers involved with adults with High Functioning ASD (HF-ASD) and compared these with the consequences reported by…

Crane, Laura; Batty, Richard; Adeyinka, Hanna; Goddard, Lorna; Henry, Lucy A.; Hill, Elisabeth L. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Accessing an autism diagnosis is a key milestone, both for an individual and their family. Using a qualitative methodology, the current study examined the views and experiences of ten autistic adults, ten parents of children on the autism spectrum, and ten professionals involved in autism diagnosis, all based in the United Kingdom (UK).…

Yap, Valerie M. Z.; McLachlan, Neil M.; Scheffer, Ingrid E.; Wilson, Sarah J. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
The present study examined whether the ability to recognize vocal emotional expressions is negatively related to features of the Broader Autism Phenotype (BAP) in the general population. We assessed 61 typically developing adults on a BAP self-report measure (Broader Autism Phenotype Questionnaire) and a purpose-developed online emotion…

Siebes, Rob; Muntjewerff, Jan-Willem; Staal, Wouter – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Little is known about the distribution of symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the lifespan. In this cross-sectional study, we examined differences between subscales of the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) between different age groups. 654 Subjects referred to an outpatient University Clinic with specialized expertise in ASD were…

Cole, Eleanor J.; Barraclough, Nick E.; Enticott, Peter G. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
ASD is associated with mentalizing deficits that may correspond with atypical mirror system (MS) activation. We investigated MS activity in adults with and without ASD when inferring others' intentions using TMS-induced motor evoked potentials (MEPs) and mu suppression measured by EEG. Autistic traits were measured for all participants. Our EEG…

C.; Zander, E.; Charman, T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Research on sex-related differences in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been impeded by small samples. We pooled 28 datasets from 18 sites across nine European countries to examine sex differences in the ASD phenotype on the ADI-R (376 females, 1763 males) and ADOS (233 females, 1187 males). On the ADI-R, early childhood restricted and…

Zwart, Fenny S.; Vissers, Constance Th. W. M.; Maes, Joseph H. R. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
It is assumed that learning on the Serial Reaction Time (SRT) task is related to learning involved in social skill development affected in autism, but this assumption has hardly been investigated. We have therefore examined associations between SRT task learning and social impairment measured by the Social Responsiveness Scale in 72 autistic and…

Haigh, Sarah M.; Walsh, Jennifer A.; Mazefsky, Carla A.; Minshew, Nancy J.; Eack, Shaun M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is characterized by a variety of social and non-social behavioral deficits. One potential mechanism that could unify this diverse profile of behaviors is slower processing speed. Seventy-six high-functioning adults with ASD were compared to 64 matched controls on standardized measures of processing speed.…

Lewis, Alan S.; van Schalkwyk, Gerrit Ian; Lopez, Mayra Ortiz; Volkmar, Fred R.; Picciotto, Marina R.; Sukhodolsky, Denis G. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), particularly the a7 nAChR, are implicated in the pathophysiology of both autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and aggressive behavior. We explored the feasibility, tolerability, and preliminary efficacy of targeting nAChRs using transdermal nicotine to reduce aggressive symptoms in adults with ASD. Eight…

Rutherford, Marion; Forsyth, Kirsty; McKenzie, Karen; McClure, Iain; Murray, Aja; McCartney, Deborah; Irvine, Linda; O'Hare, Anne – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
This study examined waiting times for diagnostic assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder in 11 adult services, prior to and following the implementation of a 12 month change program. Methods to support change are reported and a multi-level modelling approach determined the effect of the change program on overall wait times. Results were…

Rodgers, J.; Herrema, R.; Honey, E.; Freeston, M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Intolerance of uncertainty (IU) is indicated as an important transdiagnostic process variable in a range of anxiety disorders. Anxiety is very common in autistic adults. This study evaluates a manualised treatment programme for autistic adults, which focused on IU. An eight session programme (CUES-A©) was developed and delivered to four autistic…
