Hello and Goodbye: A Study of Social Engagement in Autism.
Hobson, R. Peter; Lee, Anthony
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v28 n2 p117-27 Apr 1998
Analysis of videotapes of 24 individuals with autism and 24 nonautistic persons with mental retardation found that subjects with autism were less likely to offer spontaneous verbal and nonverbal gestures of greeting and farewell and were less likely to establish eye contact when they were greeted. Results suggest a relative lack of intersubjective engagement by autistic individuals. (Author/DB)
