Profiles of Communicative and Cognitive-Social Abilities in Autistic Children.
Wetherby, Amy Miller; Prutting, Carol A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v27 n3 p364-77 Sep 1984
Results of measures in the cognitive-social areas of communicative intent, tool use, imitation, and play and in language comprehension demonstrated uneven development for the autistic subjects. A functional analysis of communicative behaviors indicated a relatively homogeneous profile of communicative functions both quantitatively and qualitatively different from the normal profile.
