Dev Neurorehabil 2018 Oct 11:1-6. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

a Bloorview Research Institute , Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital , Toronto , ON , Canada.

Globally, overweight and obesity (OW/OB) levels are high among children, with rates surpassing the adult population. With such high pediatric OW/OB rates, it is imperative that risk factors are identified and explored. Thus, Davison and Birch developed an adapted framework, based on Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Systems Theory, which identifies and categorizes the factors in a child's life that put them at risk for OW/OB.

Beyond diagnosis: the relevance of social interactions for participation in inclusive preschool settings.

Dev Neurorehabil 2018 Oct 5:1-10. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

c CHILD, Swedish Institute for Disability Research , Jönköping University , Jönköping , Sweden.

Purpose: This study aims to explore the role of three specific factors within the child-environment interaction process - engagement, independence and social interactions - in influencing development and learning of children with disabilities in inclusive preschool settings. The main question is whether children can be categorised in homogenous groups based on engagement, independence and social interactions (proximal variables within a biopsychosocial framework of human development). The study also examined whether children with the same diagnosis would group together or separately, when trying to identify clusters of engagement, independence and social interactions, and additionally whether such clusters vary as a function of individual child characteristics, and/or as a function of structural and process characteristics of preschool environment.

Dev Neurorehabil 2019 Apr 5;22(3):180-191. Epub 2018 Oct 5.

a University of Southern Mississippi , Hattiesburg , MS , USA.

Lag schedules of reinforcement represent an increasingly researched strategy for addressing restricted and repetitive social communication of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Although the body of literature suggests that lag schedules of reinforcement are generally effective for this purpose, studies have varied in their utilization of verbal rules describing the contingency. Furthermore, research has yet to evaluate generalized effects of lag schedules of reinforcement to social communication with peers. Read More
