Matson, Johnny L.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v12 n4 p361-69 1991
Social skills and levels of inappropriate assertiveness/impulsiveness were assessed using the Matson Evaluation of Social Skills with Youngsters, with 17 autistic children (ages 2-21) and 17 matched nonautistic children. Significant differences in both appropriate and inappropriate social behaviors were found. Results suggest the importance of pinpointing specific social skill deficits in autistic persons.
