Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The results showed that children with normal verbal comprehension had better performance in ToM-related social interaction than those with delayed verbal comprehension. However, children’s symptom severities significantly predicted their ToM-related social interaction only in children who had normal verbal comprehension. This study highlighted the differential predictions of symptom severity to ToM-related social interaction by their verbal comprehension levels in children with ASD.
