Autism risk associated with increasing parental age difference - About Psychology Degrees | LD | Scoop.it

It is now fairly well established that there is an association between older paternal age and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). There is also evidence for an association between maternal age and ASD. However, it is not clear whether paternal and maternal ages represent independent risk factors, or what the combined effect of paternal and maternal age is.

Moving on up - The promise of physical activity for improving classroom performance

Moving on up - The promise of physical activity for improving classroom performance | LD | Scoop.it
Today’s youth tend to lead more sedentary lifestyles compared to previous generations, as physical activity rates in children and adolescents have declined in recent decades. Students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) show particularly low rates of activity compared to their neurotypical peers. Promoting increased physical activity in these students as a means to increase health and well-being is a no-brainer.
