A Follow-Up Study of High-Functioning Autistic Children.
Szatmari, P.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n2 p213-25 Jun 1989
The follow-up study of 16 nonretarded autistic children as adults found that, though most were functioning poorly in terms of occupational-social outcome and psychiatric symptoms, four had essentially recovered. Severity of early autistic behavior was a poor predictor of outcome, but neuropsychologic measures of nonverbal problem solving were highly correlated with outcomes. (Author/DB)
