Attribution of Mechanical and Social Causality to Animated Displays by Children with Autism.
Bowler, Dermot M.; Thommen, Evelyne
Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, v4 n2 p147-71 Jun 2000
Two studies compared the descriptions given by children (N=74) with and without autism of animated stimuli depicting mechanical launching effects, intentional reactions, or sequences of mechanical and intentional reactions. Although children with autism were as able as control groups at these differentiations, differences were found in their narrative descriptions which have implications for theories of autistic social dysfunction.
