Building Community Capacity for Accessible Vaccine Events

The UCEDD in the Institute on Development and Disability at OHSU worked with the Oregon Health Authority to create resources for vaccine events to be more inclusive. They made videos, guides, and checklists to go with a boxed kit of accessibility tools. This will help people with disabilities and people who speak languages other than English get vaccines in their communities. There are more videos and resources coming soon.



New Horizons of Discovery on Sex Differences in Autism

John Constantino, MD, for the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

The sex ratio for autism, 3 boys for every girl, occurs long before the time of puberty and is observed in all populations around the world, but its cause has remained a mystery. The Washington University Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center has been hard at work for years trying to uncover the biology of this profoundly influential sex difference. This year, the IDDRC team joined the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative Collaboration on Sex Differences in Autism, an international effort to combine the technologies and work of a select group of scientists around the world to further advance understanding of the biological mechanisms that distinguish males and females in the recognition, expression, and incidence of autism.
