An Investigation of Attention and Affect in Children with Autism and Down Syndrome.
Joseph, Robert M.; Tager-Flusberg, Helen
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v27 n4 p385-97 Aug 1997
Longitudinal videotape recordings of six young children with autism and six age- and language-matched children with Down syndrome in structured play with their mothers were analyzed. Findings of reduced expression of positive affect by autistic subjects suggest that their known deficits in attention and affective responsiveness persisted even in structured interactions with a familiar partner in the home.
