Language predictors in ASD (short summary)

Language
prediction
for
autism

This study aimed to determine characteristics of children with autism that can predict their language development over time. The authors found that the number of social games and routines - such as peek-a-book, patty cake, 'so big', singing and dancing - that children with autism could participate in at a young age predicted their future development of language production. These games rely on skills that probably lay the foundation for language development and are thus more useful indicators than other measures, like non-verbal IQ or autism severity.
