AIR-P Presents: Utilizing a Cross-system Framework to Guide Research on Autism and Criminal Justice Intersections: Implications for Physical Health Outcomes

Research demonstrates that autistic individuals interact with the criminal justice system at high rates. These interactions consequently are risk factors to physical, behavioral, and mental health, as well as the overall wellbeing of autistic individuals.

AIR-P Presents - Brain and Body in Motion: Understanding and supporting motor dysfunction in Autism

Motor dysfunction are prevalent and pervasive in autistic individuals. However, due to the heterogeneity of motor dysfunction and the categorization in DSM-5 as an associated deficit, this condition often goes undetected and undertreated. Improving our understanding of motor dysfunction in autism is important so that we can adequately screen for these difficulties and ultimately provide the best interventions.
