El-Ghoroury, Nabil Hassan; Romanczyk, Raymond G.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v29 n3 p249-58 Jun 1999
Siblings, mothers, and fathers in nine families of a child with autism were observed in dyadic play interactions with the autistic child. Parents exhibited more play behaviors toward children than siblings, but the autistic children initiated more interactions toward siblings than toward parents. Vineland Adaptive Behavior scale scores correlated with parental behaviors and initiations of children towards parents. (Author/DB)
