Imagining the Outcome of Pretend Transformations: Assessing the Competence of Normal Children and Children with Autism.
Kavanaugh, Robert, D.; Harris, Paul L.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n6 p847-54 Nov 1994
Studied children's grasp of make-believe transformations they had seen enacted. Children indicated the pretend outcome by choosing a picture depicting no change or a picture depicting the pretend change. Older children chose correctly, even with the addition of a picture of an irrelevant transformation, but younger children did not. Autistic children indicated a capacity to imagine pretend transformations. (WP)
