Sign Language and Motor Functioning in Students with Autistic Disorder.
Seal, Brenda C.; Bonvillian, John D.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v27 n4 p437-66 Aug 1997
Sign language production of 14 low-functioning students (ages 9 to 20) with autistic disorder were examined. The location aspect of signs was produced more accurately by subjects than either the handshape or movement aspects. Wide individual differences were observed. Sign vocabulary size and accuracy was correlated with performance on two measures of apraxia and fine motor age scores. (DB)
