Abstract

Autistic traits and executive function (EF) were assessed in 413 typically developing children aged 6–9 years. The children were divided into the high- autistic-trait (HAT) and low-autistic-trait (LAT) groups based on their total autistic traits. Results suggested that there were gender differences in specific autistic traits in children with LAT. There were gender-specific associations between EF and autistic traits in children with HAT: the set shifting of EF predicted difficulties in social awareness in boys; whereas all the EF components predicted difficulties in social communication and social cognition in girls. These findings may have implications for developing customized interventions that are targeted at specific autistic deficits in males and females.
