Sample text

It typically involves sentences like: before 22 2 Computational Models of Autism you do this, I want you to do that and then do this and so on. These sentences place particularly heavy demands on information processing because they require processing of each segment and then a second stage of processing to determine the meaning of each bit to the next bit. Understanding the meaning of such a sentence requires yet a third level of processing. A similar process occurs with the understanding of a story.

The more the child is driven to interact with others, the more he or she can learn the meaning of such signals. Affective reciprocity is also shown by affectionate and empathic behaviors, greeting others with pleasure and spontaneously offering to share toys or food with others. Deficits in social reciprocity include: • difficulty initiating and responding to bids for interaction, • limitations with maintaining turn-taking in interactions, • problems with providing contingent responses to bids for interaction initiated by others.

2000). Also, a correlation between mental ability or false belief performance and an ability of these children to explain observed scenarios has been established. Relative to controls, CwA have a lower overall ability to provide explanations for voluntary actions and impossible physical and biological events (Sobel and Lillard 2001). 2 Tests for Differentiating Normal and Autistic Cognition and Reasoning Raven’s Progressive Matrices (RPM) is a standardized intelligence test that consists of problems resembling geometric analogies, in which a matrix of figures is presented with one entry missing and the correct missing entry must be selected from among a set of answer choices (Raven 1936).
