Is It Possible to Assess the Impact of Abuse on Children with Pervasive Developmental Disorders?
Howlin, P.; Clements, J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v25 n4 p337-54 Aug 1995
This study attempted to evaluate patterns of behavioral change resulting from abuse in a school setting of 12 children with pervasive developmental disorders, primarily autism. Use of parental reports (with corroboration when possible) found consistent patterns in both the nature and timing of behavioral disturbances, which seemed to relate specifically to the period of abuse at the school.
