The Risk for Scurvy in Children With Neurodevelopmental Disorders

“Dentists may be in a unique position to facilitate prompt and accurate diagnosis of a condition that is relatively easy and safe to treat once identified.”


[Juni 2019] Retraction: Randomized Controlled Trial of Vitamin D Supplementation in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

“We also discovered previously unidentified/reported problems with missing data and recording irregularities regarding changes in treatment regimen and subject identifiers. As a result of these issues the Editors no longer have confidence in the findings reported in the original paper.”


[31.05.2020] Vitamin D Supplementation Is Beneficial for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Meta-analysis

“Vitamin D supplementation improves the typical symptoms of autism spectrum disorder, as indicated by reduced Social Responsiveness Scale and Child Autism Rating Scale scores; thus, it is beneficial for children with autism spectrum disorder.“


Ethical Concerns With Applied Behavior Analysis for Autism Spectrum "Disorder"

“Our contribution is to argue that, from a bioethical perspective, autism advocates are fully justified in their concerns - the rights of autistic children and their parents are being regularly infringed upon. Specifically, we will argue that employing ABA violates the principles of justice and nonmaleficence and, most critically, infringes on the autonomy of children and (when pushed aggressively) of parents as well.”


The Underreporting of Vision Problems in Statutory Documents of Children With Williams Syndrome and Down Syndrome

“Vision problems can lead to negative developmental outcomes.”

Does the measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (MMRV) vaccine protect children, and does it cause harmful effects?

“Our review shows that MMR, MMRV and MMR+V vaccines are effective in preventing the infection of children by measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox, with no evidence of an increased risk of autism or encephalitis and a small risk of febrile seizure.”

+ Discussion …


Antidepressants and Online Misinformation


Autism’s drug problem

“Many people on the spectrum take multiple medications — which can lead to serious side effects and may not even be effective.”

What Ehlers-Danlos syndrome can teach us about autism

By Emily Casanova  /  21 October 2019

“We are in the midst of our first clinical study, and we hope to recruit at least 150 people. We are comparing features of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome in two sets of women: those who have autistic children and those who have children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We test the mothers’ joint mobility and orthostatic tolerance (the cardiovascular system’s ability to adjust to changes in body posture). We also ask them about their immune, hormonal and other health issues, and assess their autism traits.”

Maternal Glyphosate Exposure Causes Autism‐like Behaviors in Offspring through Increased Expression of Soluble Epoxide Hydrolase (sEH)


“These findings suggest that maternal glyphosate exposure causes ASD‐like behavioral abnormalities and abnormal composition of gut microbiota in juvenile offspring, and that increased activity of sEH plays a key role in ASD‐like behaviors in offspring after maternal glyphosate exposure.“

Almost Everyone Meets Criteria for ‘Mental Illness’

“According to the researchers, almost nine out of ten people will meet the criteria for ‘mental illness’ at some point in their life.”


Why Compassionate Activism?

“One goal is to teach the graduate students to get to know people without prejudgment, without thinking that you know someone by a label. When we see the humanness in all of us, the light and the dark, we can choose to treat each other how we want to be treated. I don’t think of an us and them. We are all doing this messy, beautiful life thing together.“


Neuropsychological Tests Reveal Consequences of Polypharmacy

“The practice of polypharmacy has sizably increased since the late ’90s and can lead to many adverse effects, including increased mortality. Combining multiple drugs brings an increased risk of cognitive side effects and iatrogenic neurological conditions.”


No Good Evidence That Antidepressants Prevent Relapse

“Currently, there is no reliable evidence that long-term antidepressant treatment is beneficial and there are legitimate concerns that it may be largely ineffective or even harmful in a substantial portion of users.”


How Mental Health Syndromes Arise From Social Change

“There is a growing movement in psychiatry and adjacent fields toward an ecological understanding of mental health as socially and economically based, rather than solely as arising within individual brains, as in the medical model. … lack of belonging, language difficulties …”


Flipping the script

“’Flipping the script‘ and focusing on what the workplace brings to people on the autism spectrum—in addition to what people with autism bring to the workplace—gives us the potential to make more rapid headway in understanding how to better support employment among these individuals.“

Applied Behavioural Analysis A Socially Valid Practice?



“Many of the autistic participants mostly struggled with feeling unloved and not accepted the way they are. They felt they needed to be changed in order to be deemed worthy of society. ABA therapy was just a series of compliance drills to them, without any logic or explanation of why they need to learn skills. …”

There is a good alternative, for example:

“According to the PTMF, current mental health services continue to retraumatize service users and replicate oppressive power dynamics. For example, imprisoning people in psychiatric hospitals against their will … Likewise, ‘anosognosia’ is another key aspect of psychiatry—the notion that the people they treat are sick because they refuse to believe they are sick.”

Increased visual bias in children with developmental coordination disorder: Evidence from a visual-tactile temporal order judgment task

“Previous studies have suggested that children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) rely heavily on vision to perform movements, which may contribute to their clumsy movements. However, few studies have objectively and quantitatively investigated the perceptual biases of children with DCD.“
