Longitudinal Studies of Autism Spectrum Disorder: From 2 to 22

9/8/2014; 67 minutes

As the number of preschool children identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) increases each year, so too will the number of children with ASD moving into adolescence. Catherine E. Lord, Center for Autism and the Developing Brain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, discusses studies that aims to determine predictors of adolescent outcome measured in adaptive skills, quality of life, positive affect, behavior problems and symptoms of anxiety and depression. The project represents a shift in emphasis from attention primarily to negative outcomes to consideration of coping strategies for individuals and families and their impact on well-being and independence.
