Libby, Sarah; Powell, Stuart; Messer, David; Jordan, Rita
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v27 n4 p365-83 Aug 1997
Three groups of 10 children matched on verbal mental age (either with autism, with Down syndrome, or normally developing) attempted to imitate single pretend acts and a series of pretend acts that formed a script. Although children with autism were best on the single-act imitation, they demonstrated specific difficulties on the script imitation. (DB)
