On early years screening for autism, with Professor Tony Charman

On early years screening for autism, with Professor Tony Charman

PsychologiCALL · 2021-04-23

Tony's main research interest is development in autism and the clinical application of this work via screening, diagnostic, epidemiological, intervention, and family studies. During this podcast he chats to Sue about a piece of work looking at outcomes from an autism early screening study that taught him a lot about the value of sample, cohorts and methods.

The paper being discussed in this podcast is:
A screening instrument for autism at 18 months of age: a 6-year follow-up study. Baird G, Charman T, Baron-Cohen S, Cox A, Swettenham J, Wheelwright S, Drew A. J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2000 Jun;39(6):694-702. doi: 10.1097/00004583-200006000-00007.


Are you a psychology student, struggling to concentrate on reading papers? A psychology lecturer, trying to mix up your teaching a bit? A teacher or parent who wants to know what's going on in child development research? or maybe a neurodivergent adult reflecting on their youth? If so, welcome to our podcast! We hope these bite-sized, guided tours of recent research papers - via an informal chat with the author - will interest and inform you. Each episode is a conversation between Sue Fletcher-Watson, Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of Edinburgh, and a fellow academic. Together we discuss one of their recent (or classic) papers relating to child and adolescent development and learning. We don’t have a recording booth or fancy equipment, but this wee bit of brain food should be a nice nutritious snack for a curious mind.
