Exploring the "Fractionation" of Autism at the Cognitive Level
Brunsdon, Victoria E. A.; Happé, Francesca
Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, v18 n1 p17-30 Jan 2014
Autism spectrum disorders are defined by difficulties across a range of areas: social and communication difficulties and restricted and repetitive behaviours and interests. It has been suggested that this triad of symptoms cannot be explained by a single cause at the genetic, neural or cognitive level. This article reviews the evidence for a "fractionable" autism triad at the cognitive level, highlighting questions for future research.
