Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study aimed to investigate the relations between EF and social interaction in preschool children. The results of the study show that accuracy in single and mixed blocks is significantly correlated with restricted interests and repetitive behaviors in preschool children with ASD. The results indicate that children with ASD who have better accuracy, not response speed, on EF tasks have less limited interests and fewer stereotyped behaviors.
