The Behaviors of Parents of Children with Autism Predict the Subsequent Development of Their Children's Communication.
Siller, Michael; Sigman, Marian
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v32 n2 p77-89 Apr 2002
Comparison of caregiver behaviors of children with either autism, developmental delay, or typical development found no difference between groups in caregiver synchronization with the child's focus of attention. Also, caregivers of children with autism who showed higher levels of synchronization during initial play interactions led to superior joint attention and language after 1, 10, and 16 years.
