Comprehension of Pretense in Children with Autism.
Jarrold, Chris; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v24 n4 p433-55 Aug 1994
The ability of 24 children with autism (ages 3-12) to comprehend pretend acts, consisting of an experimenter pouring a pretend substance from a container onto a target figure, was explored. There was no significant difference between subjects and controls in ability to identify the pretend substance, predict the actions' pretend outcome, or reflect on the actions' pretend nature.
