Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v23 n1 p1-13 Mar 1993
A visual orienting task was given to 11 high functioning male adolescents and adults with autism. Findings suggested that autistic people have difficulty processing briefly presented cue information and problems disengaging and shifting attention within the visual modality. Results support previous ideas that attentional dysfunction may underlie autistic symptomatology. (Author/DB)
