New Research Links SSRIs to Autism

Thursday, December 08, 2011

New autism study confirms that rats given citalopram (Celexa), showed key signs of autism, including a disinterest in juvenile play, poor social behaviors as adults and abnormal responses to changes in their environment.

Social Networking Site Launched for Parents of Children With Autism

Thursday, December 08, 2011

A San Francisco-based company has launched a social networking website designed to be a local resource for parents of children with autism. MyAutismTeam is the first website designed by MyHealthTeam, a company dedicated to linking local people with chronic diseases together via social media. Eric Peacock, founder and chief executive officer of MyHealthTeam, understands the wealth of information and resources available on the internet for people with autism. What Mr. Peacock says is missing, however, is localized information that goes beyond website forums and doctor recommendations. Parents who log onto MyAutismTeam will find local information on which dentists, piano teachers or swim classes are best for their autistic children. The website went into beta testing in June, starting with just 30 parents. There are currently over 12,500 parents using MyAutismTeam in 50 states and Puerto Rico.

Researchers conducted the study using 54 at-risk infants and 50 low-risk infants. The at-risk infants had an older sibling with an ASD diagnosis and the low-risk infants did not have a sibling with ASD.
