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.…

Pathological ("extreme") demand avoidance (PDA) involves obsessively avoiding routine demands and extreme emotional variability. It is clinically linked to autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The observer-rated EDA Questionnaire (EDA-Q) for children was adapted as an adult self-report (EDA-QA), and tested in relation to personality and the…

Curtiss, Sarah L.; Ebata, Aaron T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Families with children on the autism spectrum are often viewed in terms of their deficits rather than their strengths. Family meals are portrayed as sources of stress and struggle for parents and children. In this study, we take a resilience perspective to challenge underlying assumptions and get a more accurate picture of the nature of shared…

Ferguson, Jenny; Craig, Emma A.; Dounavi, Katerina – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Interventions based on applied behaviour analysis are considered evidence based practice for autism spectrum disorders. Due to the shortage of highly qualified professionals required for their delivery, innovative models should be explored, such as telehealth. Telehealth utilises technology for remote training and supervision. The purpose of our…

With the increasing prevalence of adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), research examining the service experiences of this population is greatly needed. The current study investigated service use, unmet needs, and obstacles to service access for a large sample of adults with ASD. After accounting for various demographic factors known to…

Rea, Hannah M.; Factor, Reina S.; Swain, Deanna M.; Scarpa, Angela – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Broader autism phenotype (BAP) characteristics (pragmatic language deficits, aloofness, and rigidity) are prevalent in families of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and may influence emotion-related behaviors. The current study analyzed associations among BAP characteristics with emotion-related behaviors in mothers of children with…

Cygan, Hanna B.; Marchewka, Artur; Kotlewska, Ilona; Nowicka, Anna – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Previous studies indicate that autobiographical memory is impaired in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Successful recollection of information referring to one's own person requires the intact ability to re-activate representation of the past self. In the current fMRI study we investigated process of conscious reflection on the…

Venker, Courtney E.; Edwards, Jan; Saffran, Jenny R.; Ellis Weismer, Susan – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
In typical development, listeners can use semantic content of verbs to facilitate incremental language processing--a skill that is associated with existing language skills. Studies of children with ASD have not identified an association between incremental language processing in semantically-constraining contexts and language skills, perhaps…

Siu, Queenie K. Y.; Yi, Huso; Chan, Randolph C. H.; Chio, Floria H. N.; Chan, Dorothy F. Y.; Mak, Winnie W. S. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) reported higher stress than those of typically developing children. The role of child problem behaviors in the relationship between autism spectrum symptoms and parenting stress is little known. A total of 731 parents of 177 children with ASD and 554 typically developing children in primary…

Special education policies recognize the need for developing and preserving the heritage languages of individuals with disabilities. Yet there seems to be a disconnect between policy and practice. Should the heritage languages of bilingual individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders be incorporated into interventions? This review evaluated 18…

Vismara, Laurie A.; McCormick, Carolyn E. B.; Shields, Rebecca; Hessl, David – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This is the first study to evaluate an autism intervention model, the parent-delivered Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM), for young children with fragile X syndrome (FXS), a known genetic disorder associated with autism spectrum disorder. Four parent-child dyads participated in a low-intensity, parent coaching model of the P-ESDM to evaluate…

Regional differences in ASD inpatient care remain understudied. We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample to examine contributory causes and potential determinants associated with regional variations in ASD hospitalizations. We performed univariate and multivariate analyses to identify differences in ASD hospitalizations across four U.S. Census…
