Swimming lessons may be life-saver for children with autism
A recent study investigating injury mortality in people with autism spectrum disorders delivers some surprising and disturbing results.
Could a Blood Test Spot Autism in Childhood?
Researchers say an experimental blood test has shown promise as a novel way to diagnose autism in children.
World's largest autism genome database shines new light on many 'autisms'
The newest study from the Autism Speaks MSSNG project — the world's largest autism genome sequencing program — identified an additional 18 gene variations that appear to increase the risk of autism.
Autism more common in people whose brains are anatomically more male-like
A new study finds that in addition to autism being more common in males than females, differences in brain structure can also be a factor, regardless of biological sex. It suggests that having a brain with features more commonly found in male brains is linked to higher probability of having autism spectrum disorder.
Super-parenting' improves children's autism
Giving mums and dads the skills to become 'super parents' can dramatically improve their child's autism, a long-term study has shown.
Autism-linked genes differ between siblings
In families that have more than one child with autism, the gene variations underlying each child's disorder often differ, new research showed.
Abnormal sense of touch may play role in autism
Most people think that autism is a disorder of the brain. But the skin may play a role, too, a new study suggests.
Autism to be part of core teacher training
Teachers will be taught how to support children with autism for the first time following months of campaigning from charities, parents and MPs, it has emerged.
Low B12 seen in aging, autism and schizophrenia
The brains of the elderly and younger people with autism and schizophrenia may share a common link: Both have low levels of vitamin B12, researchers say.
Autism affects family even before diagnosis
Autism may strain family life even before children are diagnosed with the disorder, according to a new study that suggests caregivers and patients alike may benefit from treatment tailored to specific sources of stress in the household.
Scientists link brain chemical to autism
Scientists say they've discovered a specific chemical in the brain they believe is linked to autism.
Survey: Autism rate higher among US children
A new survey of parents suggests that as many as one out of every 45 US children aged between 3 and 17 years have autism, a number that far exceeds official US estimates of one in 68 children, US researchers said on Friday.
Autism behaviors may differ in boys, girls
The repetitive and restrictive behaviors common in autism aren't seen as often in girls as they are in boys with the disorder, a new study said.
Genetic link found between autism, prodigy
Autism is a range of neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. Researchers have found the first evidence of a genetic link between autism and prodigy. For the study, the researchers defined prodigy as a child who achieved national or international recognition for a specific skill by adolescence. This finding may help explain why the two groups share certain characteristics, such as exceptionally good memories.
Can a parent's concerns predict autism?
As co-director of the University of Alberta's Autism Research Centre, Lonnie Zwaigenbaum has devoted much of his career to understanding how to identify autism as early as possible. But despite his years of experience, Zwaigenbaum says many physicians like him would do well to seek other expert advice when working with children not yet diagnosed, that of the parents of these young patients.
