consolidation and daily function (The effects of disturbed sleep on sleep-dependent memory consolidation and daily function in individuals with ASD).

Innovative treatments for adults and nonverbal individuals with ASD

Two additional grants will each focus on novel treatments for understudied ASD populations. Because few interventions are designed with adults in mind, Evidence-Based Cognitive Rehabilitation to Improve Functional Outcomes for Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders, (Nancy Minshew, M.D., University of Pittsburgh) and Social Processing, Language, and Executive Functioning in Twin Pairs: Electrophysiological and Behavioral Endophenotypes (Sara Webb, Ph.D., University of Washington) evaluate cognitive enhancement therapy aimed for use in training and coaching attention, memory, problem solving and social skills to improve adaptive behaviors in young adults with autism.

Finally, to aid non-verbal individuals, Laura DeThorne, Ph.D. and other investigators at University of Illinois will test a computer program that facilitates speech by providing visual feedback on production, loudness and pitch in Making Words Meet: Using Computerized Feedback to Facilitate Word Combinations in Children with ASD.

From laboratory studies to community effectiveness

Establishing the efficacy of treatment approaches does not always guarantee that a treatment will be adopted into practice. Barriers to implementation of evidence-based treatments are many. Therefore, the final step in the progression from basic research to improved health services must address how to enhance dissemination of best treatment practices to the autism community. To that end, three of the newly awarded treatment grants will focus on increasing access to interventions. Starting with an empirically validated early intervention known as Pivotal Response Training, one clinical trial will assess the effectiveness and efficiency of providi
