Cornish, K. M.; McManus, I. C.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n6 p597-609 Dec 1996
A study of children (ages 3-5 and 11-13) with autism (n=35), learning disabilities (n=26), or no disabilities (n=90) found that the nondisabled children were more lateralized than others in degree and consistency of handedness. No evidence was found of a dissociation of hand skill and hand preference in children with autism, compared to others. (CR)
