The Effect of Social Context on the Functional Communication Skills of Autistic Children.
Landry, Susan H.; Loveland, Katherine A.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n2 p283-99 Jun 1989
The study compared the attention-directing behaviors of 15 autistic children, 14 children with developmental language delay, and 13 young normal children. Although the autistic children's behavior was most unlike that of the other groups, autistic children did not produce more attention-directing behavior when a high degree of adult direction was provided.
