Dykens, Elisabeth; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v21 n3 p291-301 Sep 1991
This evaluation of thought disorders in 11 high functioning autistic young adults and older adolescents found poverty of speech, poor reality testing, perceptual distortions, and areas of cognitive slippage. In comparison with a schizophrenic reference group, autistic subjects demonstrated more poverty of speech and less illogic as well as similar thought disorders. (Author/DB)
