An Observational Study of Humor in Autism and Down Syndrome.
St. James, Paula J.; Tager-Flusberg, Helen
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v24 n5 p603-18 Oct 1994
This study observed naturalistic humor in six young children with autism and six matched children with Down's syndrome, as they interacted with their mothers. Autistic children produced and appreciated humor to a limited extent, but they produced less humor overall and less humor involving nonverbal incongruity compared to matched controls. (Author/JDD)
