1. 15q Duplication associated with autism in a multiplex family with a familial cryptic translocation t(14;15)(q11.1;q13.3) detected using array-CGH.

Author: Maryam Koochek

Research Summary Prepared By: Dr. Jeanette Holden

Using array based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH), this study identified a chromosome region containing genes that contribute to autism susceptibility. Array-CGH found chromosomal abnormalities on chromosome 14 &15 previously undetected.

2. Understanding the Symbolic nature of pictures in children with autism.

Research Summary Prepared By: Kristen McFee

Using a ‘hide and seek’ game, this study looked at a) whether children with autism were able to understand that pictures represent objects and b) whether this information is used to organize searching behavior. Children with autism's symbols understanding was comparable to typically developing children.


3. Can Tutors Learn to Teach Children with Autism through Self-Instruction?

Research Summary Prepared By: Lindsay Arnal

Evaluated whether university students can learn by self-instruction to conduct discrete-trials teaching, which is a major teaching strategy in intervention programs based on applied behavior analysis. Results indicate this may be a good possibility.
