The Understanding and Use of Interpersonal Gestures by Autistic and Down's Syndrome Children.
Attwood, Anthony; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n2 p241-57 Jun 1988
Regardless of diagnosis, 22 autistic adolescents, 21 Down's syndrome adolescents, and a sample of clinically normal preschoolers were all able to respond correctly to simple instrumental gestures (e.g., be quiet, come here). However, the ability to initiate such gestures varied, and no autistic adolescent ever used expressive gestures. (JW)
