    Autism Research Funding Allocation: Can Economics Tell Us If We Have Got It Right?

    Autism spectrum disorder research funding distribution in the US and UK. Funding allocation for each country is represented by the colors indicated in the legend. Sections outlined in black are categorized into basic science research (B), while those with no outline are in translational and clinical research. For more detailed information about funding allocation, see Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee [] and Pellicano et al. [].

  • When Father Doesn't Know Best: Selective Disagreement Between Self-Report and Informant Report of the Broad Autism Phenotype in Parents of a Child with Autism

    When Father Doesn't Know Best: Selective Disagreement Between Self‐Report and Informant Report of the Broad Autism Phenotype in Parents of a Child with Autism

    Mean Broad Autism Phenotype Questionnaire (BAPQ) discrepancy scores (informant minus self) for self-reporting parents positive and negative on broad autism phenotype (BAP) traits. Positive discrepancy scores indicate higher informant compared with self-ratings. The values depicted above the bars are the actual discrepancy score means, and asterisks and symbols denote the following significant and trend-level effects: (a) Interaction between gender (mothers vs. fathers) and BAP status (positive vs. negative) for aloof (*P < 0.05), pragmatic language (*P < 0.05), and the total BAP (***P < 0.01). (b) Rigid-positive parents have higher discrepancy scores than rigid-negative parents (**P = 0.014). (c) Fathers positive for aloof, rigidity, and the total BAP, respectively, have higher discrepancy scores than fathers negative for aloof, rigidity, and the total BAP, respectively (†P < 0.05) (‡P = 0.09). (d) Mothers negative for the pragmatic language and the total BAP, respectively, have higher discrepancy scores than mothers positive for pragmatic language and the total BAP, respectively (§P < 0.05). (e) Mothers negative for the pragmatic language, rigidity, and the total BAP, respectively, have higher discrepancy scores than fathers negative for pragmatic language, rigidity, and the total BAP, respectively (¶P ≤ 0.01).

    A boxplot of nonverbal IQ and vocabulary scores according to group. ASD, autism spectrum disorder; BPVS, British Picture Vocabulary Scale; EVT, Expressive Vocabulary Test; SLI, specific language impairment; TD, typically developing; WNV, Wechsler Nonverbal Scale of Ability.

  • Abstract Analogical Reasoning in High-Functioning Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Abstract Analogical Reasoning in High‐Functioning Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Accuracy for abstract (semantically distant) analogical reasoning trials was associated with adaptive social functioning as measured by the SRS. The negative association reflects the fact that lower SRS scores mark better adaptive social function.

  • Severity of Autism is Related to Children's Language Processing

    Severity of Autism is Related to Children's Language Processing

    Proportion of looking time by group across time intervals: (A) to target or competitor, (B) to target vs. competitor, (C) to distractors, and (D) % of children achieving first fixation by time interval. ASD-M, autism spectrum disorders moderate; ASD-S, autism spectrum disorders severe; TD, typically developing.

Treatment Research in ASD

Autism Treatment Research
Anthony Bailey
Editorial

Since the launch of Autism Research, there have been exciting advances in the genetics and neuroscience of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Concomitantly, there has been a significant increase in the number of well-designed and controlled treatment studies, reflecting both the development of new, more effective developmental and behavioral interverntions, as well as pressure for research that addresses the immediate needs of affected individuals.

Improvement in Social Deficits in Autism Spectrum Disorders Using a Theatre-Based, Peer-Mediated Intervention
Blythe A. Corbett, Deanna M. Swain, Catherine Coke, David Simon, Cassanda Newsom, Nea Houchins-Juarez, Ashley Jenson, Lily Wang, Yanna Song
Research Article

Social Emotional NeuroScience Endocrinology Theatre is a novel intervention program aimed at improving reciprocal social interaction in youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using behavioral strategies and theatrical techniques in a peer-mediated model. Previous research using a 3-month model sowed improvement in face perception, social interaction, and reductions in stress. The current study assessed a 2-week summer camp model. Typically developing peers were trained and paired with ASD youth (8-17 years). READ MORE...
