Carpenter, Malinda; Pennington, Bruce F.; Rogers, Sally J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v32 n2 p91-106 Apr 2002
Evaluation of social-cognitive skills in 23 young children with autism or other developmental delays found tests involving others' attention were more difficult for children with autism than tests involving others' behavior. However, the typical developmental pattern of first sharing, then following, and then directing attention or behavior was evident. Some intercorrelations among social-cognitive skills were found.
