Yirmiya, Nurit; And Others
Child Development, v63 n1 p150-60 Feb 1992
Examined empathy and conservation abilities of nonretarded children with autism and compared their performance to that of normally developing children. Autistic children performed surprising well, but not as well as normal children. There was a closer association between cognitive abilities and affective understanding among the autistic children than in the control group. (GLR)
