Purpose: The primary objective of this research paper was to explore the current state-of-the-art research on autism spectrum disorder from a designer's perspective. An increasing number of scholarly publications in this discipline have urged researcher interest in this topic; however, there is still a lack of quantitative analysis. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze global research output on autism spectrum disorder from a designer's perspective during 1992–2021. Methodology: A bibliometric method was employed to analyze the published literature from 1992–2021. 812 papers were downloaded from the Web of Science core collection for analysis focused on annual growth of literature, prolific authors, authorship pattern, productive organizations, countries, international collaboration, literature trends by keyword analysis, and identifying the funding agencies. Various bibliometrics and scientometrics software were used to analyze the data, namely Bibexcel, Biblioshiny, and VOS viewer. Results: There were 812 research papers published in 405 sources during 1992–2021. 2019 was noted as the most productive year (NP=101), and 2014 received the highest number of citations (TC=6634). Researchers preferred to publish as journal articles (NP=538; TC=24922). The University of Toronto, Canada, was identified as a productive institution with 42 publications and 5358 citations. The USA was the leading producing country with 433 publications, and most of the researchers publish their work in the journal "Scientific Reports" (NP=16). The word "autism" (NP=257) and "architecture" (NP=165) were the most frequently used keywords in autism research.

Se incluyeron artículos publicados entre el período de 2013 a 2017 en portugués, español e inglés.Resultados: Los artículos incluidos fueron presentados en cuadro sinóptico y el análisis de los resultados fue realizado de forma descriptiva presentando la síntesis de los estudios por medio de comparaciones y destaque de diferencias y / o semejanzas. Se identificó que es fundamental que la enfermería tenga empatía, visión holística y conocimiento para realizar asistencia singular y de calidad para el niño y la familia.Conclusión: La enfermería utiliza la empatía, visión holística y diferentes estrategias para el cuidado del niño autista, sin embargo, los profesionales refieren dificultades en la práctica clínica. Las publicaciones sobre la temática son escasas siendo necesario el desarrollo de investigaciones clínicas. Introduction: The Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) configures a neurodevelopmental disorder that involves social interaction, communication and behavior identified generally in pre-school children.

There were included articles published between the period of 2013 to 2017 in Portuguese, Spanish and English.Resulted: The articles included were presented in summary table and the analysis of the results was performed descriptively presenting the synthesis of studies through comparisons and highlight of differences and/or similarities. It was identified that is basic to nursing to have empathy, holistic vision and knowledge to perform singular assistance and of quality for the child and family.Conclusion: Nursing uses the empathy, holistic view and different strategies for the care to the autistic child; however, the professionals refer difficulties in clinical practice. The publications on the subject are scarce being necessary the development of clinical research.

Obitelji koje žive s poremećajem iz spektra autizma suočavaju se s mnogim izazovima koji ne utječu samo na dijete s tim poremećajem i njegov razvoj, već i na funkcioniranje obitelji i kvalitetu njezina života. Edukacija roditelja o poremećaju iz spektra autizma identificirana je kao prioritetna intervencija u području ove problematike, kako na nacionalnoj, tako i na međunarodnoj razini. Dok je, s jedne strane, literature o osposobljavanju (treningu) roditelja u okviru specifičnih terapijskih pristupa opsežna, pretragom baza podataka pronašli smo svega 12 članaka koji izvještavaju o istraživanjima edukacije roditelja. Ukupno gledajući, ta istraživanja pokazuju pozitivne učinke edukacije roditelja: ona može doprinjeti redukciji stresa i anksioznosti, boljem nošenju s teškoćama, poboljšanju interakcija i komunikacije između roditelja i djeteta, boljem razumijevanju poremećaja iz spektra autizma, učinkovitosti, povjerenju i poboljšanju kvalitete života roditelja. Razmatraju se četiri ključne teme: utjecaj, provedba, sadržaj i lokalna/kulturna sporna pitanja edukacije roditelja, a također i slabosti i teškoće zamijećene u dosadašnjim istraživanjima, kao i potreba za daljnjim istraživanjima na području ovih intervencija.

Autism affects how people perceive and make sense of the world around them. Autism is a spectrum condition which impacts people in different ways. Also referred to as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), it is characterized by challenges in the domains of social, cognitive and motor functioning, which differ in severity. Previous research suggests that music can have cognitive, psychosocial, behavioural, and motor benefits in this population. We systematically review the use of technology in Music-therapy and related sound-based activities to improve the motor and social skills of children. In May 2020 we conducted a systematic search on Music-therapy and musical activities for autistic children in research databases including Science Direct, APA PsycNet, Cochrane, IEE and Web of Science, to collect relevant studies. We initially collected 5179 papers of which only 27 studies were identified as suitable for the scope of this review. In the paper, we analyse and describe key characteristics of each project. We then highlight the commonalities, strengths and limitations of existing work, and identify implications for future interaction design.
