  1. Regression in autistic spectrum disorders.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):305 (2008) PMID 18956241

    A significant proportion of children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder experience a developmental regression characterized by a loss of previously-acquired skills. This may involve a loss of speech or social responsitivity, but often entails both. This paper critically reviews the phenom...
  2. Autism overflows: increasing prevalence and proliferating theories.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):273 (2008) PMID 19015994

    This selective review examines the lack of an explanation for the sharply increasing prevalence of autism, and the lack of any synthesis of the proliferating theories of autism. The most controversial and most widely disseminated notion for increasing prevalence is the measles-mumps-rubella/thim...
  3. Diagnostic and assessment findings: a bridge to academic planning for children with autism spectrum disorders.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):367 (2008) PMID 18855144

    Increasing numbers of children diagnosed and treated for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) has impacted both neuropsychologists and educators. Though both play key evaluative and treatment roles, there is no available method or process in place enabling the translation of the neuropsychological r...
  4. Can children with autism recover? If so, how?

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):339 (2008) PMID 19009353

    Although Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are generally assumed to be lifelong, we review evidence that between 3% and 25% of children reportedly lose their ASD diagnosis and enter the normal range of cognitive, adaptive and social skills. Predictors of recovery include relatively high intelligen...
  5. Placing neuropsychology in context.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):269 (2008) PMID 18949562

  6. The 'fractionable autism triad': a review of evidence from behavioural, genetic, cognitive and neural research.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):287 (2008) PMID 18956240

    Autism is diagnosed on the basis of a triad of impairments in social interaction, communication, and flexible imaginative functions (with restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests; RRBIs). There has been a strong presumption that these different features of the syndrome are strongly inte...
  7. Autism spectrum disorder: complex, controversial, and confounding.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):271 (2008) PMID 18846426

  8. Understanding executive control in autism spectrum disorders in the lab and in the real world.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(4):320 (2008) PMID 18956239 PMCID PMC2856078

    In this paper, we review the most recent and often conflicting findings on conventional measures of executive control in autism spectrum disorders. We discuss the obstacles to accurate measurement of executive control, such as: its prolonged developmental trajectory; lack of consensus on its def...
  9. Methodological challenges in causal research on racial and ethnic patterns of cognitive trajectories: measurement, selection, and bias.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):194 (2008) PMID 18819008 PMCID PMC3640811

    Research focused on understanding how and why cognitive trajectories differ across racial and ethnic groups can be compromised by several possible methodological challenges. These difficulties are especially relevant in research on racial and ethnic disparities and neuropsychological outcomes be...
  10. Neuropsychological, cognitive, and theoretical considerations for evaluation of bilingual individuals.

    Neuropsychology Review 18(3):255 (2008) PMID 18841477 PMCID PMC2652412

    As the number of bilinguals in the USA grows rapidly, it is increasingly important for neuropsychologists to be equipped and trained to address the unique challenges inherent in conducting ethical and competent neuropsychological evaluations with this population. Research on bilingualism has foc...
