Family Experience of Safe: A New Intervention for Families of Children with a Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder

Systemic Autism-related Families Enabling is a new step toward families of children with autism Spectrum Disorder. Twenty two families of a child with a diagnosis of ASD severity level 1 or 2 were invited. After each session, family members completed the Helpful Aspects of Therapy questionnaire. The HAT results revealed that adults and children used SAFE to be helpful, which was expanded on in terms of: increasing knowledge, increased awareness, feeling closer, more confident to reflect, and feeling less lonely and lonely.

Global trends in the application of virtual reality for people with autism spectrum disorders: conceptual, intellectual and the social structure of scientific production

A rise in scientific evidence on the use of virtual reality in people with autism spectrum disorder has been demonstrated in recent years. We therefore recommend investigating conceptually, academically, and socioeconomically the global trends in the use of virtual reality for education by people with ASD using bibliometric techniques. The Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, according to the results, is the Journal in which the field of publications is arranged. Also, the introduction of cheaper and more portable VR systems has resulted in the introduction of this tool to many areas of people with ASD who had not been addressed before. These findings may lead to the use of other bibliometric tools that will expand the field of knowledge of the field of research and the development of a new software to investigate in more detail the application of VR in people with autism spectrum disorders.

Contributing factors to healthcare costs in individuals with autism spectrum disorder: a systematic review

Background Individuals with autism spectrum disorder are more likely to use healthcare than those without disabilities, resulting in higher healthcare expenditures for families and health services. This study was designed to look at healthcare costs and its determinants among people with ASD. The greatest amount of direct medical spending on people with ASD were Therapeutic interventions, outpatient visits, and medications. According to included studies, ASD-related health conditions, including the absence of health care, having associated morbidities, more severe signs, younger age groups, and lower socioeconomic status are all associated with higher medical expenditure in people with ASD. Conclusions This systematic review found a variety of causes, including lower SES and a lack of health-care, which are correlated with higher healthcare costs in people with ASD. Our report shows that policy options can be developed to minimize financial risks in families of people with ASD in countries that do not have a tax-based or universal health care system.

Modeling the dynamic brain network representation for autism spectrum disorder diagnosis

Abstract The dynamic functional connectivity analysis provides valuable insight for understanding functional brain function in the context of various cognitive processes. Modeling spatio-temporal variability in functional brain networks is crucial for explaining autism spectrum disorder's functional mechanisms. Using the sliding window technique, we first converted rs-fMRI time series into a temporal multi-graph. The temporal multi-graph clustering is then used to eliminate the temporal multi-graph series's inconsistency. The autism brain imaging data exchange dataset shows that the latest dynamic brain network embedding learning model outperforms state-of-the-art brain network classification schemes.

The electroretinogram b-wave amplitude: a differential physiological measure for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder

Background Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (LDG) is the most common childhood neurodevelopmental disorder. The reduction of retinal responses in ASD has been reported, but no information about retinal dysfunction in ADHD has been found. In this research, we compared the light-adapted ERGs of people with ADHD, ASD, and control to see if retinal responses differ between these neurodevelopmental conditions. Results Compared to both the control and ASD groups, statistically significant increases of the ERG b-wave amplitudes, PhNR responses, and faster times of the b-wave time-to-peak were discovered in those with ADHD. At 1. 204 log phot cd. m. 2 flash amplitudes, which were substantially lower than that in the controls, the greatest rises in the b-wave amplitudes associated with ADHD were recorded at 1. 204 log phot cd. s. m. b-wave amplitudes were recorded at 1. 204 log phot cd. m. , as the b-wave amplitude in ASD amplitudes. Conclusions The ERG b-wave amplitude value for both ADHD and ASD seems to be a distinctive difference between both ADHD and ASD, resulting in a radically different pattern of b-wave responses.

Effectiveness of psychological techniques in dental management for children with autism spectrum disorder: a systematic literature review

Background A rise in the number of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder has been documented, illustrating the need for dental professionals to be more aware of the treatment options for these special needs children in order to ensure safe, well-accepted, and effective administration while in the dental office. Aim This paper was intended to provide a greater insight into some of the more recent and best practices for treating children with ASD in dental settings. Original full-text papers including randomised controlled trials and all other forms of non-randomised controlled experiments involving English intervention studies were accepted without any publication time limit. Conclusions of our review The use of recent psychological and non-pharmacological techniques used to treat children with ASD in dental settings has been inconclusive evidence. However, this report contained useful information on some recent attempts to gain greater insight into the care of children with ASD for dental professionals.

Evaluation of an artificial intelligence-based medical device for diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder

Autism spectrum disorder can be diagnosed reliably at 18 months, but significant diagnostic delays persist in the United States. This double-blinded, multi-site, prospective, and active comparator cohort research investigated the reliability of an artificial intelligence-based software as a Medical Device intended to support primary care healthcare providers in diagnosing ASD. The Device incorporates behavioral characteristics from three distinct inputs in a gradient-boosted decision tree machine learning algorithm to produce either an ASD positive, ASD negative, or indeterminate output. In a cohort of 18–72-month-olds with developmental delay issues, this paper compares Device outputs to diagnostic agreement by two or more independent experts. The device has shown promise to greatly raise the number of children able to be diagnosed with ASD in a primary care setting, potentially facilitating earlier intervention and more effective use of specialist services.

Clinical overlap between functional neurological disorders and autism spectrum disorders: a preliminary study

Sensory Perception Quotient-Short Form participants also completed the Sensory Perception Quotient-Short Form, assessing sensory sensitivity, thus measuring sensory sensitivity. At least one FNS was reported by 86 percent of ASD patients, a much higher rate than the NA one. Although FNDs individuals displayed less autistic characteristics than NA, they did not have a higher number of FNSs than NA, ASDs employees had a higher rate of FNSs than NA; this rate was associated with greater sensory sensitivity, especially in the touch domain.

Response to McKenzie et al. 2021: Keep It Simple; Young Adults With Autism Spectrum Disorder Without Intellectual Disability Can Process Basic Emotions

We recently reviewed the insightful and informative paper "Empathic consistency and affective empathy in young adults with and without autism spectrum disorder". These studies show that young adults with autism spectrum disorder without intellectual impairment can safely distinguish between various common spoken emotions, but that young adults with autism spectrum disorder without intellectual impairment can also have trouble processing difficult, subtle emotions.

A Literature Review of Social Communication Interventions for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder in General Education Settings

Purpose of Study Research has found that educating people with autism is most beneficial in general education settings with peers, according to the authors. This report reviewed the latest literature on best practices for teaching social skills in general education contexts. One of the main findings was that time spent in interventions allows individuals more direct instruction; more opportunities to learn a new skill; more resources, encouragement, and assistance in designing the new skill until it is correct; and more reinforcement and opportunities for reinforcement; all essential skills for learning for autism people with autism.
