Nonverbal Expression in Autism of Asperger Type.
Tantam, Digby; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v23 n1 p111-33 Mar 1993
Two experiments evaluated the social interactions of 15 Asperger-type autistic subjects with either normal or schizoid control subjects. Asperger subjects tended to avoid gazing at the interviewer when the interviewer was talking. Results suggest that a lifelong absence of gaze response to social clues including speech may explain some features of autism. (Author/DB)
