Putting a Dollar Amount to Autism Pays Off

Autism spectrum disorders have an enormous price tag, and experts at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are hoping that all those dollar signs add up to increased attention on new research and more coordinated ways to support patients with autism throughout adulthood.

Honing in on the Biological Markers of Autism

The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders, or ASD, is staggering — an estimated 1 out of 88 children have some form of ASD. As the word “spectrum” in the name suggests, ASD varies in its range and severity among those affected.

Research Links Attention, Slower Gaze Shifting in Infants Who Develop Autism

Children who are later diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder have subtle but measurable differences in attention as early as 7 months of age, a new study shows. Infants who went on to be diagnosed with autism are slower to shift their gaze from one object to another, according to the researchers, who identified specific brain circuits that seem to cause the slower response.

Searching for the Signs of Autism in Infants

One out of 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There is no cure and relatively few treatments that work well for everyone on the autism spectrum. But research, including ground-breaking studies on infants, is making great strides to better understanding autism spectrum disorders.

Study Finds Some Children Can “Recover” from Autism

A new study verifies the long-controversial belief that a few children, in exceptional cases, can “recover” from autism. The study, which included CHOP’s Center for Autism Research, is the first solid science to confirm that, however rarely, with the help of behavioral therapy some children can make such great improvements that they no longer qualify as having autism.

CHOP Researchers Find New Gene Variants Related to Autism Spectrum Disorders

Genetics researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have found 25 “high impact” gene variants that occur in some patients with autism. Although rare individually, each genetic variant has a strong effect in raising a person’s autism risk. These findings could be incorporated into clinical tests for evaluating children for autism spectrum disorders.
