Research and Autism News Massachusetts Autism News

November 26, 2012- "Effective Autism Care Requires Attention to Comorbidities, Research Indicates"- Dr. Darryn M. Sikora is the lead author of a study that found that behavioral problems in autism spectrum disorder often improve when the symptoms are properly addressed through medical treatment. For example, insomnia is very common for children with ASD and can lead to increased problem behavior and emotional issues, but doctors and therapists can make a positive difference in the child’s overall well-being by addressing these sleep problems and other co-morbid conditions common in autism.
