Leevers, Hilary J.; Harris, Paul L.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n1 p64-87 May 2000
Compared performance of children with autism, with learning disabilities, and normally developing 4-year-olds on reasoning problems with and without instruction to use imagery. Found that instruction to use imagery led to persistent logical performance. Children with autism displayed a distinctive response pattern, performing around chance levels, showing a simple response bias, and rarely justifying their responses. (Author/KB)
