Bacon, Alyson L.; Fein, Deborah; Morris, Robin; Waterhouse, Lynn; Allen, Doris
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v28 n2 p129-42 Apr 1998
The development of 193 preschool children from five groups (developmental language disordered, high-functioning autistic, low-functioning autistic, mentally retarded, and normally developing) were coded in situations involving simulated distress by an adult. Low functioning autistic children showed deficits in responding to all situations. The behavioral feature that marked both autistic groups was a lack of social referencing. (Author/DB)
