New Article on Autism & Gastrointestinal Problems

Sharing an article today co-written by a valuable member of the START Research Committee, Calliope Holingue, a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University. Ongoing research like this is key to understanding the biopsychosocial factors that promote positive outcomes and mental wellness for individuals with IDD and their families.

"The ability to accurately measure gastrointestinal symptoms in people with autism is critically important for several reasons. It could reveal whether certain treatments cause or exacerbate them. It could also tell us whether they are linked to certain risk factors for autism, such as maternal immune activation, or whether gut health itself is a risk factor for autism. And it could reveal whether treating the symptoms can ease autism-related behaviors."
