I would like to share information with readers and followers regarding the availability of two separate research studDocumentsies for children with autism and/or their parents. Participation in on-going research is important to help push the field along in our understanding of autism, behavioral challenges, and ways to support and/or intervene.

The first study is looking at ACT which is a behaviorally-based method of therapy. This study is for a student’s doctoral dissertation. ACT Parenting Workshop Flyer – Summer

The second study is being conducted by Rebecca Landa from Kennedy Kreiger.

Maybe I’ll blog about these studies when they are finally published!

We were quite pleased to see this post in the Stamford Advocate today! Yay Team ABS!

I came across this link on one of my news feeds. It is super cool that the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta in conjunction with Delta Airlines are doing this!

Great news! We just learned that our paper has been published in Case Reports in Psychiatry. My colleagues at the Johnson Center for Child Health and Development in Austin co-authored the study with me.

If you are interested in the study, you may download it here.

Let me know if you have questions about the case. It was truly fascinating.
