IAN and AIC Families Help Researchers Test Inventory
Families in the Interactive Autism Network (IAN) and Autism Inpatient Collection (AIC) helped researchers test a new tool for assessing problems with emotional control in youth with autism. The tool, called the Emotion Dysregulation Inventory, can be used with both nonverbal and verbal youth with autism. It also is geared toward those problems most common in autism, such as irritability. Members of the Autism Inpatient Collection have joined IAN, and have a special section here. The lead author of this study is Carla A. Mazefsky, PhD, who was profiled here.
