The Development of a Psychoeducational Tool to Manage Anxiety in People With Autism Spectrum Disorders

ASDs have a devastating impact on adaptive function current UK lifetime costs of supporting a person with an ASD, along with the opportunity costs of lost productivity, are estimated at 0.8-1.2 million per year (Knapp, Romeo, & Beecham, 2009).

Phase N/A

Encopresis & MIE (DoD #2)

Toilet training one's child is a nearly universal challenge for parents, but is a particularly distressing ordeal for parents of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Whereas typically developing children generally stop having daytime toileting accidents (i.e., they achieve continence) by 2-4 years of age, most individuals with ASD are ...

Changing Developmental Trajectories Through Early Treatment

Previous research has suggested that earlier intervention may contribute to better outcomes in autism. Answering the question "how early?" has significant health and educational implications for age of screening for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and age of entry into early intervention for children with ASD. With the increased number of ...

Phase N/A

Motor Learning and Brain Changes in Autism

Participants: Participants will include 30 adolescents with ASD (14-18 years of age). Exclusion criteria consists of engaging in more than 2 hours/week of balance training activities (i.e., yoga, tai chi, Wii/Kinect balance games) at study start. Each individual will receive a pre-training magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Participants will be ...

Clinical Trial for Asses the Safety and Efficacy of Vitamin C and Vitamin E in Combination Versus Placebo for Treating Cognitive and Behavior Disorder in Children With Fragile X Syndrome

The combination of vitamin E and vitamin C supplementation has been associated with a lower prevalence (-78%) and incidence (-64%) of Alzheimer's disease in the elderly population. It has recently been shown that dietary vitamin E supplementation reduces the production of free radicals inhibiting NADPH oxidase activity in circulating neutrophils. ...

Translating Evidence-based Interventions for ASD: Multi-Level Implementation Strategy

Overview of Collaborative R01. The investigators propose to conduct two, coordinated studies testing the impact of the "Translating Evidence-based Interventions for ASD: A Multi-Level Implementation Strategy" (TEAMS). TEAMS focuses on improving implementation leadership, organizational climate (Teams Leadership Institute; TLI), and provider attitudes and engagement (TEAMS Individualized Provider Strategy for Training; ...

Vagal Nerve Stimulation in Coma Patients

Minimally Conscious (MCS) or Vegetative State (VS) are disorders of consciousness which often occur following traumatic brain injury or ischemia. These alterations result most of the time in patients' loss of autonomy and require long years of special care. No efficient therapy to improve patients' consciousness has been found so ...

Phase N/A

Testing a Novel Speech Intervention in Minimally Verbal Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

The ability to communicate verbally is considered the most important prognostic indicator for children with ASD. If a child has not developed speech by age 5, it is generally considered unlikely that he or she will do so. Although a small number of cases of speech development in older children ...

Phase

Evaluation of a Clinical Transitional Program in Autism

Clinical trial without drug, randomized: Comparison of a specific and integrative clinical protocol for young adults with autism to usual treatment. It will include both low and high-functioning participants.

Phase N/A

Do Sleep and Circadian Rhythm Disturbances Impact the Cognitive and Behavioural Development of Children With Autism?

The primary objective of this study is to undertake a longitudinal investigation of the impact of sleep and circadian rhythm disturbances on cognitive and behavioural trajectories in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) age 3-10 years old. This innovative study will use objective quantifiable measures of sleep and circadian rhythms ...
