Watson, Linda R.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v28 n1 p51-59 Feb 1998
Fourteen mother-child dyads involving preschool children with autism and 14 matched dyads of typically developing children and mothers were observed during free play. Mothers of autistic children directed verbalizations to something within the child's focus of attention as often as other mothers. They directed verbalizations to something not within the child's focus of attention more frequently than other mothers. (DB)
