  • In the Eye of the Beholder: Visualizing Strengths, Burdens and Desires
           Through the Lens of Neurodivergent Children, Their Parents, and
           Professionals Using the Yucel Method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives In mental healthcare, there is a growing emphasis on one’s strengths and context instead of focusing primarily on individual deficiencies, pathologies, risks, and negative emotions. Using the visual and tactile Yucel method, this study gains insight into strengths, burdens, and desires of neurodivergent children in residential care and their parents from different perspectives. Methods In this qualitative study, a total of 45 interviews with the Yucel method were conducted with nine neurodivergent children, their parents, and involved professionals. All built a constellation of the child and family’s strengths, burdens, and desires using the Yucel method. To explore if by applying this visual and tactile method additional information is provided to that gathered in the standard diagnostic process, the information of the Yucel method was compared to the information found in the multidisciplinary reports of the children. Results Thematic analysis showed that besides common mentioned strengths (e.g., mother, sports and activities) and burdens (mental health problems), differences in the informants' perspectives were found. Parents mentioned strengths and burdens that were not addressed by other informants and a diversity in needs was found. The comparison of the results from the interviews with the Yucel method with the information in the multidisciplinary reports showed that the Yucel method provided additional information. Conclusions The Yucel method brought more strengths and perspectives into view than diagnostics as usual in the first three months of residential care. This study contributes to the knowledge regarding personal, strength-based, and family-oriented diagnostics in mental healthcare of neurodivergent children and their families.

  • Support Preferences and Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) in the
           Clinical Care of Autistic Children: Stakeholder Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are increasingly utilised within healthcare settings to enhance decision making. However, few studies have investigated their application in the context of clinical services for autistic people, with no research to date exploring the perspectives of the key stakeholders who are, or in the future may be, impacted by their use. Given the importance of stakeholder perspectives in ensuring that CDSSs are relevant, feasible, and acceptable to those who use them, the aim of this study was to examine the views of key stakeholders in relation to support preferences and a proposed CDSS intended to aide in the selection of the most appropriate supports for autistic children. Method Using a co-designed, mixed-methods approach, 20 participants comprising autistic adults, parents of autistic children, and practitioners providing services to autistic children were invited to participate in focus groups, or an open-ended online survey, to explore views regarding support provision and any opportunities, barriers, recommendations, and support for the use of CDSSs in clinical practice. Results Participants highlighted potential benefits of using a CDSS in clinical practice, such as creating efficiencies and consistency in decision making when selecting therapies and supports, provided it was part of a holistic approach to working with autistic children. Potential barriers largely centred on concerns about the safety of data to be utilised within the system. Conclusions The findings indicate that CDSS have the potential to play a valuable role in selecting supports for autistic children, providing appropriate safeguarding occurs.

  • The Impact of Parent-Mediated Naturalistic Interventions with the Addition
           of Speech-Generating Devices on Vocalizations of Children with Autism
           Spectrum Disorder and Complex Communication Needs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Many school-aged children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are functionally nonverbal or minimally verbal and need ongoing speech intervention to improve their vocalizations. Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of integrating speech-generating devices (SGDs) with evidence-based practices to facilitate natural speech development in children with ASD. However, little is known about the extent to which the impact of the procedural fidelity of caregiver-delivered naturalistic intervention on the expressive language of children with ASD, particularly in the context of comprehensive interventions incorporating SGDs. Methods The current study employed a multiple probe design to examine language outcomes in four children aged 3–6 years old who progressed in parent-mediated interventions involving SGDs. The study aims to evaluate the implementation fidelity of naturalistic developmental interventions, delivered by caregivers after receiving one-on-one training and coaching on an intervention package that involves SGDs and other EBPs. After caregivers met the implementation criteria, researchers continued to assess the speech changes in the child participants. Results The results suggest that the training could facilitate parents’ acquisition of interventional strategies. A positive functional relation was identified between parents’ implementation fidelity of intervention strategies and children’s speech gains. The Tau-U statistical analysis revealed a large effect size, indicating the statistical significance of the intervention’s impact on the dependent variables. Conclusions Leveraging the elements of naturalistic developmental intervention and integrating SGDs with EBPs, parents have the capacity to deliver effective routine interventions to improve the natural speech of children with ASD and speech impairment.

  • Health Practitioner Attitudes to Psychosocial Treatments in ADHD: Impact
           of Country, Age, Profession, and Beliefs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects around 7% of children/adolescents and 3% of adults. Treatment guidelines propose a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. Despite this, research has focused on the use of medication, including how this varies between countries, with differences found between high-income countries (HIC) and low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). Studies have also identified that the role of practitioners is critical with their clinical ambivalence around ADHD impacting treatment. The present study aimed to examine the views of practitioners towards psychosocial treatments for ADHD in the UK (HIC) and Malaysia (LMIC). Methods Data was collected from health practitioners in the UK and Malaysia using an online survey to assess (i) demographics and employment characteristics, (ii) practitioners’ attitudes to psychosocial treatments for ADHD, and (iii) practitioners’ beliefs about ADHD. Results Respondents in Malaysia held more positive attitudes towards psychosocial interventions, despite having similar beliefs about the condition. Furthermore, attitude to psychosocial interventions was predicted by age of the practitioner, their qualification, and belief in ADHD as a real condition with biological markers. Conclusions This study has revealed some cross-cultural differences in attitudes towards non-pharmacological treatment for ADHD and provides a starting point for future research to move beyond examination of decision-making for pharmacological treatments only.

  • Scoping Review of Communication Abilities of Children with Rett Syndrome
           in Daily Routine: A Communication Partners’ Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Rett syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, may impact language development and be associated with severe communication deficits. Communication partners, such as parents and health professionals involved in children’s daily lives with RTT, are the most relevant for understanding their communication needs. This article aimed to provide an overview of the identification of communication abilities in children with RTT in their daily routine from the perspectives of communication partners who interact with individuals diagnosed with RTT. Methods A scoping review was used to comprehensively search and gather evidence from existing literature on how communication partners understand, define, and classify the communication abilities of children with RTT in their daily routines. The quality of each selected study was assessed using the modified critical appraisal skills program (CASP) checklist. Results This scoping review revealed specific communication abilities in children with RTT as described by the communication partners interacting with them daily. Accurate assessment outcomes rely on the communication partners’ perspectives on the communication skills of children with RTT. Conclusions This review highlights the need for future studies to support and identify preassigned communicative acts in the communication assessment of children with RTT.

  • Use of Preferred Stimuli as Receptive Identification Targets for Children
           with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), in addition to core deficits in social communication, tend to devote attention to a restricted range of environmental events. Embedded interest interventions are used to establish one’s motivation to participate in low-preferred or neutral activities. We designed this single-case research study to evaluate the use of interests as receptive identification targets for children with ASD in the context of an intervention with added components as needed. Methods We compared the use of high- versus low-preferred receptive identification targets on receptive identification acquisition, stimulus generalization, and generalization to labels. We also evaluated ancillary variables (i.e., eye gaze, response attempts, and challenging behaviors) to examine if embedding interests acted to establish motivation for task engagement. An adapted alternating treatment design was used with changing conditions and reversal design. Results Two children acquired more high-preferred receptive identification targets in fewer trials overall compared to low-preferred targets, one of whom only showed marginal improvements in the HP condition relative to the LP condition. A third participant had no improvements in either condition. All participants demonstrated increased engagement in the high-preferred condition relative to the low-preferred condition. Participants who mastered targets showed some improvements in generalization probes, primarily for HP targets. Conclusions Practitioners may consider beginning with high-preferred targets in receptive identification programs for children with ASD, but side effects should be monitored in tandem with acquisition outcomes.

  • Sex Differences in Autism Symptoms and Mental Health Difficulties in
           Adolescents with Rare Genetic Disorders

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Adolescents with rare genetic disorders often display autism traits and mental health difficulties. Sex differences have been identified for mental health symptoms, including comorbidity with autism difficulties, among autistic youth. However, these sex differences may differ with rare genetic ethology and have yet to be examined in rare genetic disorders. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine sex differences in mental health difficulties and autism symptoms among adolescents with rare genetic disorders. Method Adolescents with rare genetic disorders (N = 93 Mage = 13.2 years, SD = 2.4, 60.2% females, 39.8% males) were assessed with parent-reports on the Child Behavior Checklist, the Social Communication Questionnaire, and the Social Responsiveness Scale. Results Males displayed more total autism characteristics and externalizing difficulties compared with females (Hedges g = 0.44-0.71). Within autism subdomains, males displayed more restrictive and repetitive behaviors and social communication difficulties compared with females (Hedges g = 0.43-0.63). In examining interaction effects, females were found to have a stronger relationship between restrictive and repetitive behaviors and total mental health and externalizing behaviors than males on the Social Communication Questionnaire. Conclusions The sex differences typically found with idiopathic autism could be extended to a sample of adolescents with a known genetic likelihood of autism traits. Among adolescents with rare genetic conditions, autism symptoms may be more strongly associated with mental health difficulties in females compared with males.

  • Differences in Mealtime Behaviors, Food Security, and Weight Concerns
           Between Neurotypical Youth and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in nutrition-related factors between youth with ASD and NT youth, and to examine the association between ASD diagnosis, sociodemographic factors, and nutrition-related variables with child weight status. Methods Data was utilized from the 2019 National Survey of Children’s Health which consisted of items related to children’s health and well-being. Parent-reported variables on dietary behaviors, child weight concerns, mealtime behaviors, and food insecurity were compared between children with ASD and NT youth using chi-square analyses. Logistic regression examined factors related to physician-reported concerns regarding overweight status among youth. Results A total of 59,725 including 1,702 (weighted sample of 1,954,261) children with ASD and 58,023 (weighted sample of 70,959,327) NT children were included in the analysis. A greater percentage of parents of children with ASD reported weight-related concerns about their child (p < .001), food insecurity (p < .001), and fewer family meals together (p = .04) compared to parents of NT youth. Results from the regression analysis revealed that the odds of weight concerns for youth with ASD were 2.29 times (95%CI = 1.62-3.25) the odds of weight concerns for NT youth. Conclusion Children with ASD experienced more nutrition-related difficulties than NT youth, and an ASD diagnosis was most strongly associated with physician-reported weight concerns compared to other sociodemographic and nutrition-related factors. Future research should further examine the role of food insecurity and family meal frequency on nutritional difficulties and weight status in families of children with ASD.

  • Associations Across Developmental Domains in Autistic Toddlers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives While diagnostic criteria for autism focus on social communication and behavioral deficits, many autistic children also demonstrate difficulties with motor skills. The nature of connection between these motor difficulties and other areas of development remains largely unknown, especially in young children. This preliminary study explored the relationships between motor skills and social function in autistic toddlers, with consideration to the role of cognitive function. Methods Nineteen autistic toddlers between the ages of 18 and 42 months participated. Motor, cognitive, and personal–social skills were assessed using standardized measures. Results Seventy-nine percent of children demonstrated below average total motor scores (< 1 SD below test mean). Motor skills in autistic toddlers were positively associated with social skills; however, this relationship may be impacted by cognitive skills. Visual–motor integration, grasping, and ball skills specifically were also positively associated with social function. Conclusions These preliminary findings suggest the relevance of motor skill development in social functioning among young autistic children and help to inform future research examining interactions across developmental domains in this population.

  • Behavioral Parent Training via Telehealth for Autistic Children: Further
           Exploration of Feasibility During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Many autistic children exhibit challenging and disruptive behaviors that can present challenges for both children and their families by interfering with acquisition of adaptive skills and affecting family and peer relationships. Behavioral parent training (BPT) is an evidence-based approach to reducing autistic children’s disruptive behavior, but many families face a number of barriers to accessing BPT, such as availability of BPT in their community, and transportation and scheduling challenges. Therefore, we sought to explore the feasibility and promise of effectiveness of adapting an established BPT program to a telehealth format during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods A feasibility trial of BPT via telehealth was conducted with fourteen parents of autistic children. Results Parents and clinicians were able to implement BPT via telehealth with a high degree of fidelity, and parents rated both BPT and the telehealth format favorably. The program also showed promise of effectiveness in reducing autistic children’s disruptive behavior, improving their adaptive skills, as well as reducing parents’ stress, and improving parents’ sense of parenting competence. Conclusions The findings replicate and extend findings from previous studies, further demonstrating the promise of telehealth as a viable alternative format for delivering BPT. We also explore implications for future research, including the opportunity for more thorough evaluation of the effectiveness of BPT via telehealth.

  • Whole-Body Vibration Training Protocols for People with Cerebral Palsy: a
           Systematic Review of Randomised Controlled Trials

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Whole-body vibration training (WBVT) has been emerging as a promising therapeutic modality for cerebral palsy (CP); however, reported efficacy is inconsistent and methodological approaches differ substantially. This study aimed to review the methodological protocols adopted by randomised controlled trials reporting on the efficacy of WBVT for people with CP. Methods Electronic databases were searched for randomised controlled trials reporting on the efficacy of WBVT for people with CP. Data were extracted from included studies related to study and participant characteristics and WBVT protocols including training programmes, patient positioning, and machine and vibration specifications. Results Eighteen randomised controlled trials were identified. Training programmes varied considerably, including duration, number of sessions per week, session length, and whether static, dynamic, or combination exercises were performed. Positioning of participants on the vibration platform also varied, including foot, knee, hip, and hand positioning. The machine specifications were poorly reported, with variations in frequency, amplitude, and peak acceleration settings. Conclusions This review highlights the inconsistency in the use and reporting of training protocols, machine specifications, and patient positioning when investigating the efficacy of WBVT for people with CP. Current clinical trials continue to poorly acknowledge WBVT research recommendations, which may contribute to ongoing misunderstanding of basic WBVT principals and safety considerations, as well as contribute to the inconclusive results with regard to treatment efficacy.

  • Remote Intensive Intervention for Young Children on the Autism Spectrum
           During COVID-19: the Experience of Caregivers and Service Providers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Community-based early autism intervention programs in Geneva, Switzerland, converted their in-person services to a telehealth format during the COVID-19 home confinement period. The current study was aimed at measuring the engagement and satisfaction of service providers and caregivers as they experienced telehealth services for the first time and at monitoring child progress. Methods Forty-five families from diverse backgrounds and their 45 service providers had daily videoconferencing sessions of primarily parent-mediated intervention. Satisfaction questionnaires were completed at three time points over a 2-month period. Session frequency and program participation were recorded. Caregiver and service provider’s answers were compared. Results were also analyzed by family annual income. Child progress was monitored using the Early Start Denver Model Curriculum Checklist. Results Caregivers and service providers maintained high levels of participation and satisfaction throughout the telehealth service period and appreciated how the telehealth format allowed them to meet more frequently. Lower-income families tended to be more unanimously positive about the services when compared with mid- and high-income families. We found significant group differences in service providers’ and caregivers’ perceptions of each other’s comfort level with the remote sessions. Child progress followed a pattern of continued significant improvement across most developmental domains during the telehealth service period. Conclusions These findings underscore the potential of telehealth as a promising and appreciated approach for delivering intensive early autism interventions in community settings. Further research is needed to determine optimal session frequency for remote parent-mediated intervention and to determine ways to make telehealth services more accessible for low-income families.

  • Implicit Motor Sequence Learning in Adults with and Without Developmental
           Coordination Disorder (DCD)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Even though individuals who have DCD may have difficulties learning a motor skill, few studies have investigated the mechanisms involved. Understanding these mechanisms and whether individuals with DCD show selective deficits would be of theoretical and practical interest. This study examined implicit motor sequence learning in adults with and without DCD using a serial response time (SRT) task. Methods Eleven participants with DCD (according to the DSM-5 criteria) and 18 participants without DCD matched for age, gender and handedness completed a version of the serial response time (SRT) task. Following this, a free generation task (FGT) assessed explicit sequence knowledge. Results Both groups were able to complete the SRT task and showed comparable accuracy. A Condition x Block interaction for response time (RT) data during the learning phase was explained by a failure of the DCD group to improve their performance, while the control group showed the typical learning effect of gradually faster RTs. Responses on the FGT revealed that the DCD group also acquired significantly less sequence knowledge than the control group during the task. Controlling for the development of sequence knowledge across the two groups still revealed an implicit learning deficit in the DCD group. Conclusions Adults with DCD failed to demonstrate the typical signs of implicit (procedural) learning on an established and influential sequence learning task. In addition, difficulties in acquiring task-related knowledge may point towards multiple difficulties in learning motor skills.

  • The Overlooked Disorder: (Un)awareness of Developmental Coordination
           Disorder Across Clinical Professions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a common condition with core difficulties in motor skills. Recent research has identified links between DCD symptoms and negative outcomes for mental and physical health. Despite this, DCD appears to still not be well known, even to many clinicians. To date, this has been documented among specific groups of clinicians (e.g., occupational therapists) in primarily English-speaking regions, but has not been compared across specific clinical professions or across countries. Therefore, we conducted a cross-national study to examine if clinicians in primarily English-speaking and German-speaking communities of various professions are sufficiently informed about characteristics of DCD in comparison with ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Methods N = 346 clinicians responded to questions in an online survey about general awareness and their experience in treating neurodevelopmental disorders, especially regarding specific characteristics of DCD and ADHD. Moreover, we asked them to classify a case vignette with DCD. Results Overall, 58% of participants had heard of DCD but only 42% had treated individuals with DCD. More specific knowledge about DCD and ADHD was low, varied by profession, and was generally reduced among clinicians working in primarily German-speaking communities. Participants often gave an incorrect diagnosis for the case vignette (35% correct responses) but still offered correct treatment recommendations (61% correct responses). Conclusions Awareness of the specific nature of DCD is still lacking for many clinicians. More training about DCD and other neurodevelopmental disorders should be disseminated in clinical training.

  • Caregivers’ Accounts of School Searches for Children with Cerebral Palsy
           in a Developing Sub-Saharan African Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological condition caused by damage to the part of the brain known as the cerebral cortex and affecting the coordination and movement of individuals. The challenges faced by caregivers raising children with CP cannot be overemphasized. However, information regarding the accessibility of education for children with CP is scant or unreported. In this study, we investigated the experiences of parents in their efforts to enroll their children with CP in schools. Methods Qualitative semi-structured interviews were conducted with a cohort of 40 parents with children with CP who were observed for 5 years. The interviews were transcribed and subjected to thematic analysis. Results The results that emerged from the thematic analysis demonstrated the difficulties faced by parents in searching for a school for their children with CP. According to the study participants, both special and regular schools were inaccessible to children with CP, due to unfriendly school environments, transportation problems, and high costs, as well as a lack of resources, qualified staff, and human resources. Conclusions The findings underscore the urgent need for policymakers in Ghana to consider or make provisions for the education of children with CP. Without this, children with CP and their families could be entrapped in a vicious cycle of poverty, deprivation, and dependence on others for their livelihoods.

  • Neurobiological Concomitants of Autism as Informers of Clinical Practice:
           a Status Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Although a great deal of research is conducted into the neurobiological correlates of autism, there has been no recent overview of the findings from this research in terms of how they translate to clinical practice. To provide an overview of recent literature in the fields of head size, brain volume, brain region, connectivity between brain regions, and synaptic function, as they apply to autism, with a view to informing clinical practice. Methods Major empirical and review papers on these topics from the last 30 years were identified via a search of PubMed, Google Scholar, and PsychInfo, using the descriptors ‘autism’, ‘head size’, ‘brain volume’, ‘brain region’, ‘connectivity between brain regions’, and ‘synaptic function’. To distil the key findings relevant to clinical practice, both authors conducted blind reviews, producing a set of ‘key’ papers for this purpose. Results Each field produced a number of major findings, which were then described and discussed, and translated into a table of ‘Findings’, ‘Diagnostic suggestions’ (for the clinician’s protocols), and ‘Clinical actions’ (suggestions for interactions with carers of autistic children and adults). Conclusions The stability of the research within each field varies, with some clear findings and others that are yet to be consistently verified. Despite this, some specific clinical implications for diagnosis and treatment (particularly clinician-carer interactions) are described.

  • Quality of Life of Latin-American People with Neuromuscular Disorders and
           Their Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire population, especially the population with chronic diseases. This study aimed to describe the quality of life of children and adults with neuromuscular diseases and their caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods A observational correlational study was conducted. Forty-seven participants, including adults with NMD and caregivers of children with NMD, took part in the study. The WHOQOL-BREF and PedsQL 4.0 GCS and FIM scales were used. Results The PedsQL indicated a mean of 55.85 (SD = 22.05) for children, and a mean of 55.76 (SD = 16.72) for caregivers. Adults reported a mean of 67 (SD = 22.5) for their general perception of quality of life, and a M = 53 (SD = 28.25) for their perception on health. Conclusions The results showed regular to low quality of life of all children, adults, and caregivers, mainly in the physical dimension for people with neuromuscular diseases, and in the concerns dimension for caregivers. These results warn about the physical and psychological vulnerability situation in which this population finds itself.

  • Mothering Children with Visual Impairment in Ghana: an Exploration of
           Expectations and Challenges

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives The quality of parenting arguably determines the quality of life that a child will live in the future. Although both mothers and fathers are expected to contribute toward raising their children, in the cultural context of sub-Saharan Africa, mothers automatically become the primary caregivers and managers of domestic affairs. In the event that there are children with disabilities in a family, the mother is expected to be the carer. While having a child with a disability places an additional burden on mothers due to the child’s unique characteristics, there is only a small body of literature on mothering children with visual impairments (VI) in the African context. In a cultural environment such as that of Ghana, it is important to understand mothering experiences. Methods Twenty mothers of children with VI who were at least 18 years old took part in this qualitative descriptive study. A semi-structured interview guide was developed and used to collect the data, which were then subjected to thematic analysis. Results Three themes were identified: opportunities for development, support services, and challenges faced by mothers. While the sample of mothers demonstrated high expectations, resilience, and a commitment toward raising their children, support services were unavailable to them. Conclusions While shouldering all the caregiving responsibilities, the participants remained resilient, did not appear to be stressed, and were committed to raising their children with VI.

  • Oral Sensory Issues with Feeding and Communication Skills in Autistic
           Children

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Oral sensory, communication, and feeding issues are frequently observed to co-occur in autistic children. The study attempted to explore the association between oral sensory deficits, feeding, and communication deficits in autistic children. Methods Behavioral Pediatric Feeding Assessment Scale (BPFAS), Child Sensory Profile 2 (SP-2), and Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales Developmental Profile Infant/Toddler Checklist (CSBS-DP) were administered to forty autistic children in the age range of 2.5-7 years. The correlation among the three domains was determined using Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Results A low negative correlation was found between SP-2 scores and CSBS-DP (r = −0.24, p = 0.13), indicating that the higher the oral sensory scores, the poorer the communication skills. SP-2 and BPFAS scores had a moderate positive correlation (r = 0.47, p = 0.002) i.e., higher scores in SP-2 were associated with higher scores in feeding, indicating that oral sensory issues were directly related to the feeding issues. Conclusions The overall findings indicated that the presence of oral sensory issues is associated with feeding and communication deficits in autistic children.
