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). The impact of having an anxiety disorder has also been shown ...

Phase N/A

Features Emotional Responses in Adults With Autism: Comparison With Bipolar Disorder (REMBAU)

The objective of this study is to identify the specific characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in emotional response profiles and shared with Bipolar Disorder (BD) characteristics.

Phase N/A

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.

CBT for Anxiety in Children With Autism

Anxiety is among the most common concerns in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who seek mental health services, causing suffering and family stress and exacerbating social disability. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a promising treatment for anxiety in children with high-functioning ASD, but the neural mechanisms supporting response to this ...

Phase N/A

MRI Study of Cerebral Blood Flow in Development Disorders in Children

Anatomical and functional abnormalities have been identified in the superior temporal sulcus (STS) in autism by brain imaging modalities, including positron emission tomography (PET), functional MRI and diffusion MRI. These results suggest that brain imaging abnormalities within the STS could be the first step in the cascade of neuronal abnormalities ...

Phase N/A

Treatment With Acetyl-Choline Esterase Inhibitors in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a group of developmental disorders of brain function resulting in a distinct phenotype, most probably related to many specific causes. Individuals with a disorder in the autism spectrum are a heterogeneous group of patients with early childhood onset of deficits in social interaction, communication and ...

Phase

Susceptibility Genes in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Specific aims are: Aim 1: To identify genetic variants in selected synaptic genes, by targeted sequencing with deep coverage of coding regions and a strong focus on previously untested regulatory regions in Autism Spectrum Disorder Aim 2: To define the range of clinical phenotypes caused by mutations in synaptic genes ...

Phase N/A

Prebiotic Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Children with ASD have a higher incidence of dietary and/or bowel problems than typically developing children. it has been postulated that imbalances in the gut bacteria and/or metabolites present in the gut may be a contributing factor to these symptoms, with potentially bad (toxin-producing) bacteria colonising the gut.
