Consanguinity and Autism

Roy, N., Ghaziuddin, M. & Mohiuddin, S. Curr Psychiatry Rep (2020) 22: 3. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11920-019-1124-y

Abstract

Purpose of Review
Consanguinity can increase the risk for autosomal recessive conditions, along with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Rarely outside of the genetics community is this discussed. Understanding its impact on the development of ASD and increasing awareness for physicians is important.
Recent Findings
ASD is a polygenic multifactorial disorder associated with morbidity and burden of care. Studies have confirmed its heritability, suspecting to an autosomal recessive transmission. Consanguinity increases the risk for uncovering recessive disorder and its role as an independent contributor for the development of ASD should be examined.
Summary
With consanguinity being a known risk factor for autosomal recessive conditions, clinicians should routinely screen for it when evaluating for ASD, as this is inconsistently done. If suspected, genetic testing should be also recommended. Understanding current risk as well as future risk and providing families with the education to make the most informed decisions is necessary.

Keywords: Consanguinity, Autism spectrum disorder, Homozygous mapping, Genetic counseling

Effects of a Computer-Based Intervention on Emotion Understanding in Children with Autism Spectrum Conditions

Vasilevska Petrovska, I. & Trajkovski, V. Effects of a Computer-Based Intervention on Emotion Understanding in Children with Autism Spectrum Conditions. J Autism Dev Disord (2019). https://doi.org/10.1007/s10803-019-04135-5

Abstract

This randomized controlled study evaluated a computer-based intervention on emotion understanding in 32 children with autism spectrum conditions with and without intellectual disability (ID) aged 7–15 years. The intervention group (n = 16) used the program for 12 h while the control group (n = 16) was not included in any intervention or training beside the usual educational curriculum. After controlling for pre-intervention scores and symptom severity, strong positive effects were observed in emotion recognition from real face photographs and pictograms, as well as in understanding situation-based emotion across both intellectual ability groups. The typical and ID intervention groups performed significantly better on all EU measures, compared to controls, at the level of feature based distant generalization.

Key words: Autism, Intellectual disability, Intervention, Emotion understanding, Emotion recognition, Computer-based intervention, Facial expressions.
