Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

This study examined ideational skills and playfulness in children with and without autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children with ASD had poorer ideational skills than typical peers. No relation was found between ideation and playfulness. Results inform an understanding of ideational skills in children with autism.
