Huijnen, Claire A. G. J.; Lexis, Monique A. S.; Jansens, Rianne; de Witte, Luc P. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The aim of this research was to study roles, strengths and challenges of robot-mediated interventions using robot KASPAR for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Twelve focus group sessions were organized in which 70 ASD care and/or education professionals participated. Six roles for KASPAR were identified: provoker, reinforcer, trainer,…

Tremblay, Isabelle; Grondin, Steffany; Laberge, Anne-Marie; Cousineau, Dominique; Carmant, Lionel; Rowan, Anita; Janvier, Annie – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Parents' understanding/expectations regarding genetic testing for children with developmental disorders were explored. Within a month of testing, interviews were conducted with 57 parents. Many (74%) could not recall the nature of testing. Parents expected genetic testing to have positive impacts for the child (93%) and the family (98%), mainly to…

Bo, Jin; Pang, YanLi; Dong, Liangsan; Xing, Yu; Xiang, Yuan; Zhang, Mingting; Wright, Morgan; Shen, Bo – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Several recent studies revealed that physical activity programs that focus on fundamental motor skills could enhance both motor and social performance. The purpose of this pilot was to explore whether the social impairment of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) moderated the motor outcomes of a physical activity program. Nine children with ASD…

Koegel, Lynn Kern; Glugatch, Lindsay B.; Koegel, Robert L.; Castellon, Fernanda A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Children with autism spectrum disorder demonstrate challenges in socialization that can interfere with their participation in common childhood activities and can persist or worsen if not addressed. The purpose of this study was to assess whether individualized education program (IEP) social goals could be targeted by a supervised paraprofessional…

Espanola Aguirre, Elaine; Gutierrez, Anibal – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The Motor and Vocal Imitation Assessment (MVIA) was developed to evaluate a proposed hierarchy of imitation skills that could be used to formulate an experimentally-validated instructional guide for intervention. Imitation performance was assessed via the MVIA in 30 typically developing (TD) children and 30 children with Autism Spectrum Disorder…

Chester, Monica; Richdale, Amanda L.; McGillivray, Jane – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Despite widespread clinical use of group-based social skills training (SST) for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there remains a lack of follow-up data, generalisation effects, common definition of social skills, and teacher report data. This study evaluated the effectiveness of an 8-week SST intervention with a play component…

Vasilevska Petrovska, Ivana; Trajkovski, Vladimir – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This randomized controlled study evaluated a computer-based intervention on emotion understanding in 32 children with autism spectrum conditions with and without intellectual disability (ID) aged 7-15 years. The intervention group (n = 16) used the program for 12 h while the control group (n = 16) was not included in any intervention or training…

Parsons, Lauren; Cordier, Reinie; Munro, Natalie; Joosten, Annette – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This study explored characteristics of children with autism with large intervention effects following a peer-mediated pragmatic language intervention, to devise algorithms for predicting children most likely to benefit. Children attended a 10-week intervention with a typically-developing peer. Data from a pilot study and RCT formed the dataset for…

Holopainen, Annaleena; de Veld, Daniëlle M. J.; Hoddenbach, Elske; Begeer, Sander – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Youth with ASD often show limited or atypical empathic responsiveness. The direct effects of social skills interventions on enhancing empathic responsiveness is unknown. Data from a randomized controlled trial were used to investigate whether a Theory of Mind training improves the empathic responsiveness, measured through structured observations.…

Parsons, Dave; Wilson, Nathan J.; Vaz, Sharmila; Lee, Hoe; Cordier, Reinie – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This study aimed to explore the appropriateness of an ICT intervention, the Therapeutic Outcomes by You application (TOBY app), from the perspectives of the parents. Parental experiences of twenty-four parents of a child with ASD who had participated in a three-month trial using the TOBY app were collected using semi-structured interviews.…

Wieckowski, Andrea Trubanova; Swain, Deanna M.; Abbott, A. Lynn; White, Susan W. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The impact of facial emotion recognition (FER) deficits on facial emotion expression (FEE) during interaction with a novel computerized system was investigated in children with ASD (n = 20), in comparison to typically developing (TD) peers (n = 20). Although there was not clear evidence of impaired FEE, children with ASD showed more atypical FEE.…

Dyson, Margaret W.; Chlebowski, Colby; Brookman-Frazee, Lauren – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Publicly funded mental health services play an important role in serving children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Previous research indicates a high likelihood of adaptations when therapists deliver evidence based practices to non-ASD populations, though less is known about therapists' use of adaptations for children with ASD receiving mental…

Hoover, Daniel W.; Romero, Elizabeth M. G. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This study examined the feasibility, acceptability, and psychometric characteristics of a web-based touchscreen app prototype designed to assess self-reported trauma exposure and symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The prototype was piloted with 20 clinically referred children previously diagnosed with ASD and having various…

Yerys, Benjamin E.; Bertollo, Jennifer R.; Kenworthy, Lauren; Dawson, Geraldine; Marco, Elysa J.; Schultz, Robert T.; Sikich, Linmarie – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The presence of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is associated with worse cognitive control. Children with ASD and ADHD often respond poorly to medications, thus we need alternative treatments. We examined the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of Project…
