McGee, Gail G.; Feldman, Robert S.; Morrier, Michael J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v27 n4 p353-65 Aug 1997
This study compared the ongoing levels of naturally occurring behavior in 32 typical preschool-aged children and 32 children with autism. Results are discussed in terms of implications for establishing early social intervention goals for children with autism. It concludes that key peer-related behaviors must be assessed across time and activities if fundamental change in social behavior is the goal. (DB)
