NCD Study on Sexual Assault with Disabilities on College Campuses

The National Council on Disability is in the process of collecting data for a report on sexual assault of students with disabilities on college campuses. The report will provide a national overview of college services and supports regarding sexual assault on campus - from prevention to reporting, to post assault support, and how survivors with disabilities fare within those structures. The findings in this report primarily serve to assist policymakers with insight needed to make informed policy that improves the ability of colleges to provide services, supports, and improved outcomes for students with disabilities who have experienced sexual assault on campus. Thank you for participating in this important work.

AIR-P Transitions to Learning Network model and Engages in Multi-Site Research Projects

The Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P), led by Karen Kuhlthau, PhD, conducts research on evidence-based interventions to improve the physical health and well-being of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, with an emphasis on underserved communities. Two key goals of the AIR-P network are 1) to conduct multi-site research on evidence-based interventions that improve physical health of children and adolescents with ASD and developmental disorders, especially underserved populations and 2) to transform AIR-P into a multi-site Learning Network (LN) which will provide a collaborative laboratory for developing and testing evidence-based interventions and accelerating the adoption of effective interventions and system management approaches into practice.

Beta-adrenergic antagonism modulates functional connectivity in the default mode network of individuals with and without autism spectrum disorder

R-40 Grant Research Outcomes Summary by David Beversdorf, MD

Current research is beginning to suggest that propranolol, a drug originally developed to control blood pressure and heart rate by blocking beta-adrenergic receptors, which is also used for performance anxiety, might be helpful in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). However, the mechanism by which this occurs is not entirely known. Our team examined how propranolol affected interactions between brain regions, or functional connectivity (FC), with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). We examined this in both those with ASD and in those without ASD.
