Social Initiations by Autistic Children to Adults and Other Children.
Hauck, Margaret; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v25 n6 p579-95 Dec 1995
Comparison of social initiations by 18 children with autism and 13 verbally matched children with mental retardation found autistic children's social initiations were more ritualized and the retarded children's were more playful. Autistic initiation to peers was unrelated to severity of autism, but was related to cognitive skills, whereas retarded children's initiations were unrelated to cognitive level. (Author/DB)
