The Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P) 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. 

This year, AIR-P Network members will present 16 abstracts at IMFAR and 2 abstracts at PAS. Topics of presentations include dietary influences on obesity, sleep problems, bridging the gap between primary care and specialty care, and racial and ethnic disparities.

The AIR-P holds a monthly webinar series titled "Advances in Autism Research & Care" where investigators, often junior investigators, present their work in various stages of development. Through the past year, we've observed increased participation (attendance range: 35-200) for topics including monitoring antipsychotic medications in children with ASD, sleep problems, GI/stress, and network Registry data. Future topics will include transition, family engagement, quality improvement, and neurology/epilepsy.
