Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v16 n4 p349-57 1990
Parents rated the fears of their autistic children (n=14), and results were compared with ratings for nonhandicapped same-sex, same-age (2.5-17 years) peers. More autistic children than nonhandicapped children were rated as having specific common fears. Fears of autistic children were often different suggesting qualitative variations or developmental differences between the groups. (Author/DB)
