Infantile Autism: A Syndrome of Multiple Primary Deficits?
Goodman, Robert
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n3 p409-24 Sep 1989
Consideration of underlying neurological and psychological deficits suggests that the autistic syndrome results from the coexistence of at least two distinct constellations of functional impairments: deficits in mechanical language skills, as in the developmental dysphasias; and deficits in social relatedness, play, and nonverbal communication, as in Asperger's syndrome.
