Abstract

There is currently limited research and a lack of consensus on emotional processing impairments among adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The present pilot study sought to characterize the extent to which adults with ASD are impaired in processing emotions in both words and pictures. Ten adults with ASD rated word and picture stimuli on emotional valence and arousal. Their ratings were compared to normative data for both stimuli sets using item-level correlations. Adults with ASD rank-ordered stimuli similarly to typically developing individuals, demonstrating relatively typical understanding of emotional words and pictures. However, they used a narrower range of the scales which suggests more subtle impairments affecting emotion-processing. Future directions arising from the findings of this pilot study are discussed.

1
The valence of a stimulus refers to its pleasantness while arousal refers to the amount of stimulation it evokes (Bradley and Lang 1999; Dichter et al. 2010).
 
2
One participant did not undergo ADOS-2 testing due to resource constraints, but provided documentation of diagnosis as verification.
 
3
For the purposes of the present study, only valence and arousal ratings are reported.
