Autism by Another Name? Semantic and Pragmatic Impairments in Children.
Brook, Sarah Lister; Bowler, Dermot M.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v22 n1 p61-81 Mar 1992
A review of the literature on children with language disorders characterized by semantic and pragmatic impairments suggests that some of these conditions may stem from the same fundamental cognitive and interpersonal difficulties found in early childhood autism. A summary of recent research and theory in autism is also presented. (Author/DB)
