Sick Kids scientists figure out formula for predicting autism [cached]
"[Dr. Scherer is] one of the pre-eminent researchers in the autism genetics field," said Dr. Robert Ring, chief science officer at Autism Speaks.
Dr. Ring says there are no medicines for the core symptoms of autism, which are repetitive behaviour and difficulty with social interactions and communication. Two antipsychotic drugs, originally developed for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, are sometimes used to treat associated symptoms of autism. "The good news for families here is the activity in this area [drug development] is growing every day," says Dr. Ring.
Autism Statistics for 2014 - Research, Information & News [cached]
The new statistics raise significant concerns about access to care, because autism is a lifelong disorder and the need for services only begins at diagnosis, says Robert Ring, chief science officer for the advocacy group Autism Speaks.
"Behind these numbers are real people," he says. "Every one of these numbers is a family that's coming to terms with the implications of the diagnosis for the lifespan of their loved one."
"We need a plan to respond to these numbers, a national strategy for autism, and leadership has to come from Washington," because every congressional district is affected, says Ring.
There are still disparities in awareness and access to care among minorities and poorer families, which can have a direct impact on a child's outcome, he says.

Robert H. Ring
Dr. Robert Ring was appointed Chief Science Officer (CSO) of Autism Speaks (AS), the world's largest autism science and advocacy foundation, in 2013.
A neuroscientist by training, Dr. Ring is responsible for overseeing a science program at AS that has invested over $220 million in basic and translational autism research since 2005. Dr. Ring joined Autism Speaks in 2011, and served as Vice President and Head of Translational Research until his appointment as CSO.
Prior to joining Autism Speaks, Dr. Ring served as Senior Director and Head of the Autism Research Unit at Pfizer, where he led the first research group in the pharmaceutical industry dedicated exclusively to the discovery and development of medicines for ASD and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Dr. Ring's work at Pfizer was preceded by 10-year tenure at Wyeth Research, where he distinguished himself in CNS medicines development, and held key leadership roles in the company's psychiatry division. In 2014, Dr. Ring was appointed to the US government's Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC).
He holds adjunct faculty appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (New York) and Pharmacology and Physiology at Drexel University College of Medicine (Philadelphia). He earned a B.A. degree in both Fine Art and Biology (double-major) from Westmont College (Santa Barbara, CA), and Ph.D. in Molecular Neurobiology from the City of Hope National Medical Center (Monrovia, CA).
