The reliability of this measure has been established in previous research; therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate its validity among a sample of children (1-15 years). The large correlation between the…

Adolescents with high-functioning autism (HFA) possess core social and pragmatic deficits, which interfere with normal relationship development.

Initial research has indicated that adolescence is the time when symptoms of…
