Brief Report: Planning Problems in Autism at the Level of Motor Control.
Hughes, Claire
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n1 p99-107 Feb 1996
Subjects with autism (n=36) were assigned a simple "reach, grasp, and place" task. Comparison with nonautistic children who had mental retardation and younger normally developing children found that the autistic subjects had problems in executing goal-directed motor acts even in very simple situations, suggesting an independent and marked impairment in executive control.
