Chin, Hsiao Yun; Bernard-Opitz, Vera
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n6 p569-83 Dec 2000
A study examined whether three children with autism could be trained in conversational skills and whether this would lead to changes in standard tests of theory of mind. The amount of shared interest exhibited by the children during conversations increased during training sessions and children made more responses that were appropriate. (Contains references.)
