Gastrointestinal Issues in Autism Spectrum Disorder

SIG Leader: Timothy Buie SIG Co-Leader: Calliope Holingue A substantial number of individuals with ASD experience gastrointestinal (GI) issues, yet the role of the gut in ASD is unclear, and the assessment of GI symptoms/disorders in this population remains problematic. This SIG will bring together researchers from epidemiology, genetics, and evaluation and treatment of GI disorders, in order to identify next steps and collaborations to be made in order to advance our understanding of the role of the gut in ASD. Accelerated collaboration will foster the INSAR mission of promoting an integrated approach to research and enhance scientific contributions in this key research area at future meetings.
