Adrien, Jean Louis; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v25 n3 p249-63 Jun 1995
This study compared the regulation of cognitive activity in 30 children (ages 15 to 95 months) with autism or mental retardation matched for global, verbal, and nonverbal developmental ages. Testing on tasks of object permanence indicated that the autistic children had a pervasive difficulty in maintenance set, made more perseverative errors, and were more variable in their behavioral strategies.
