Naturalistic Observation of Children with Autism: Evidence for Intersubjectivity.
Toomey, Janice; Adams, Lawrence A.
New Directions for Child Development, n69 p75-89 Fall 1995
Briefly reviews current knowledge about the nature of limits of intersubjectivity (ability to acquire and manage representations of self and other through social experience) in autistic children. Describes an observational study of verbal autistic children indicating the presence of intersubjectivity, but with little of the verbal social comparisons of nonautistic children. (HTH)
