Program to Improve Dental Care: Children With ASD

After providing consent and assent from applicable children, the researchers will administer the Sensory Processing Measure to test for sensory processing difficulties. Those that meet criteria on this assessment will then complete baseline testing. If the child does not score as having sensory processing problems on the Sensory Processing Measure, ...

Phase N/A

A Feasibility Study of N-acetylcysteine for Self-injurious Behavior in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

Self-injurious behavior (SIB) in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can cause physical harm to the child and interfere with the child's ability to make use of educational programs and helpful treatments such as speech therapy. The turmoil caused by self-injurious behaviors in children with ASD invariably interferes with daily ...


Fatty Acid Supplementation in Children With ASD

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) suffer from both mental and physical symptoms that affect their quality of life and severely disrupt family well-being. Fatty acid supplements are natural products with anti-inflammatory properties often used for treatment of ASD symptoms, but their efficacy remains unproven. The objective of the proposed ...


The Gut-Brain Study

Nearly 1 in 60 children are diagnosed with ASD, a dramatic increase from the start of the 21st century. Although most children with ASD exhibit core social communication deficits, very limited interests, repetitive behaviors and sensory problems, the severity of symptoms and how well each child responds to standard behavioral ...


Heterogeneity in ASD: Biological Mechanisms Trajectories and Treatment Response

While social communication is a core developmental deficit that characterizes children with ASD, there is great heterogeneity in both presentation and gains with treatment. Long term outcomes of children with ASD vary with nearly 40% remaining minimally verbal by school age. Beginning early and providing high doses of intervention appears ...

Effective early treatments that account for ADHD symptoms have not been developed for young children with ASD. The overarching goals of this randomized, placebo-controlled, ...


Exposure Therapy for Auditory Sensitivity in Autism

Sensory processing difficulties have been well documented in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In fact, "hyper- or hypo-reactivity to sensory input" has recently been added to the diagnostic criteria of this disorder. Hyper-reactivity features are particularly disruptive to children's abilities to engage in everyday activities and pose a significant ...
