Brown, Julie; Whiten, Andrew
Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, v4 n2 p185-204 Jun 2000
Systematic naturalistic observations of imitation, theory of mind, play, and social contact were conducted with children with autism, adults with autism, children with learning disabilities, and normally developing young children. Although little imitation was observed in any but the normal young children, the autistic subjects showed less interaction with peers, more manipulative activity, and less symbolic play.
