Abstract

Language and communication deficits are key diagnostic criteria for autism. However, not all aspects of language are equally affected. Here we present evidence of enhanced performance of a critical aspect of language—word processing—in children with autism. The results have implications for explanatory theories of autism and language, and for the development of therapeutic approaches.
