Symptom severity may be an important predictor of pretend-play performance in children with ASD. In this study, we applied an elaborate pretend-play assessment to characterize the pretend play of children with ASD with different symptom-severity levels. The results demonstrate that children with very mild autistic traits display more object substitutions and higher percentages of elaborate pretend play actions than children with severe ASD during symbolic play.
