Monthly News |August 2019

 If you missed it, the last issue of our e-newsletter included my new editorial, Large-scale studies in autism: What do they show? Given the numerous small, medium, and large-scale research studies, the autism and medical communities should no longer question whether or not autistic individuals may suffer from one or more medical conditions. In addition, clinicians should make a concerted effort to assess each individual's medical status, especially since many, if not most, individuals on the spectrum have challenges in communicating their discomfort and pain.

In recent years, our knowledge about the role of comorbid medical problems in ASD has expanded rapidly. Now it is time for us to translate this knowledge into state-of-the-art research and more effective treatment options, so individuals with ASD can get the help they need.
