The Strange Stories Test: A Replication with High-Functioning Adults with Autism or Asperger Syndrome.
Jolliffe, Therese; Baron-Cohen, Simon
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v29 n5 p395-406 Oct 1999
Individuals with either high-functioning autism (N=17) or Asperger Syndrome (N=17) were tested with Happe's Strange Stories Test, which assesses the ability to interpret a nonliteral statement. Compared to normal controls, both groups had greater difficulty providing contextually appropriate mental state answers, with the autistic group having the greatest difficulty. (Author/DB)
