Vocabulary Development in an Autistic Boy.
Williams, Tim I.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v23 n1 p185-91 Mar 1993
This study reports data on form classes (e.g., nouns, verbs, modifiers) of the early vocabulary of an English-speaking boy with autism, to determine whether his language acquisition was referential or expressive. Results are compared with norms for normal and Down's syndrome populations. The predominance of nominals suggests a referential language acquisition pattern. (DB)
