Influence of Question Type on Response Adequacy in Young Adults with Autism.
Hewitt, Lynne E.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v31 n2 p135-52 Mar-Apr 1998
This study investigated success in responding to naturalistic conversational questions by six young adults with autism, using a quantitative discourse analytic method. Four types of questions were identified: more than seven words in length; multiclausal; requiring inference; and indirect requests for information. The prediction that inference-based questions would be the most difficult was not supported. (Author/DB)
