Autism spectrum disorder is a term used to describe a constellation of early-appearing social communication deficits and repetitive sensory-motor behaviours associated with a strong genetic component as well as other causes. The outlook for many individuals with autism spectrum disorder today is brighter than it was 50 years ago; more people with the condition are able to speak, read, and live in the community rather than in institutions, and some will be largely free from symptoms of the… Expand

A Case Study in Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism spectrum disorder is a common neurodevelopmental disorder with onset during early life but with life-long implications for the affected person. The term is now broader and all-inclusive andExpand
Autism spectrum disorder and kidney disease
TLDR
Practical approaches for providing care are discussed, which include understanding methods of communication and sensory, behavioural and environmental adaptations, and emerging evidence that ASD and kidney disease have some overlaps with genetic copy number variants and environmental factors contributing to shared pathogenesis.

Autism in Adulthood: Clinical and Demographic Characteristics of a Cohort of Five Hundred Persons with Autism Analyzed by a Novel Multistep Network Model
TLDR
The findings indicate that the development of public centers specialized in assisting and treating PWA can improve the accuracy of ASD diagnosis in adulthood and foster specific habilitative interventions aimed to improve the quality of life of both PWA and their families. Expand

TLDR
Autism is a frequent, precocious behavioral constellation of social and communicative atypicalities associated with apparently restricted interests and repetitive behavior and paired with an uneven ability profile, which is compatible with high levels of integration into society. Expand

TLDR
14 children who had not been identified as having ASD at 3 years of age, despite detailed early assessments by a skilled research team are described, out of 113 children who received ASD diagnoses in middle childhood. Expand
Focal Electrographic Seizures in a Patient With Autism Spectrum Disorder and Speech Delay.
TLDR
Electroencephalography showed extremely frequent, almost constant focal electrographic seizures arising from the T3/T5 electrodes in the speech area of the left temporal lobe, prompting the initiation of oxcarbazepine maintenance therapy. Expand
