This study investigated the prevalence and correlates of anxiety and mood problems among 59 9- to 14-year-old children with Asperger syndrome (AS) or high functioning autism. When compared with 1751 community children, these children demonstrated a greater rate of anxiety and depression with a significant impact on their overall adaptation. No differences between AS and autistic children were found. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
