Teaching Academic Success Skills to Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders in Clinical Setting

The goal of the study is to develop an academic EF intervention, Teaching Academic Skills to Kids (TASK), for high functioning (i.e., IQ score 80) middle-school youth with ASD and EF deficits. Aim 1: Develop the TASK intervention targeting academic EF skills for middle school youth with ASD that is ...


A Novel Framework for Impaired Imitation in ASD

Visuo-motor imitation (VMI) impairments are central to the pathogenesis and affect the treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Therapies most commonly used to enhance social, communicative, academic, adaptive and occupational function in individuals with ASD rely on imitation, and impairments in VMI represent a bottleneck to the efficiency and efficacy ...

the Impacts of Theta-burst Stimulation on Children and Adolescents With Autism Spectrum Disorder

The investigator would like to investigate the impact of theta-burst stimulation over posterior superior temporal sulcus in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder


A Pilot Study of Buspirone for the Treatment of Anxiety in Youth With Autism Spectrum Disorders

The main objective of this exploratory 8-week pilot study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of buspirone for the treatment of anxiety in youth (ages 6-17 years) with autism spectrum disorders. The study results will be used to generate hypotheses for a larger randomized-controlled trial with explicit hypotheses and ...

Studies of Brain and Body Interaction

What is the study for? The goal of this study is to characterize biophysical signals simultaneously co-registered from the person's nervous systems. To that end the investigators use multiple wearable biosensors (electroencephalogram, electrocardiogram, kinematics,etc.) and have the person move naturally during activities that are similar to what the person would ...
