Sustained Attention in Children with Autism.
Garretson, Helen Bray; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v20 n1 p101-14 Mar 1990
Twenty-three autistic children (age 4-19) and 23 mental age-matched controls completed a task of sustained attention. Results suggest that autistic children's difficulties in sustaining attention may be attributable to developmental delay and motivational contingencies of task rather than to a primary impairment in ability to sustain attention.
