ABSTRACT Resumen: En esta investigación se trabajaron cuatro conductas de lenguaje en dos niños con autismo. Como parte de estas habilidades, se enseñó a los niños a diferenciar situaciones de pertenencia como respuesta a la pregunta ¿de quién es?, mío, o de mamá, y la comprensión de datos referidos a sí mismo, ante preguntas como: ¿puedes caminar?... ¡Sí!, ¿con qué?; ¿puedes coger cosas?... ¡Sí!, ¿con qué? Para ello se aplicaron técnicas de modificación de conducta como el reforzamiento positivo, moldeamiento y encadenamiento. Los resultadosobtenidos fueron satisfactorios. Los datos se presentan en tablas y gráficos para una mejor comprensión por parte de los lectores.Abstract: This research deals with the work on four language behaviors in two autistic children. The children were taught to discern ownership, asking questions such as 'Who does this belong to? Is it mine or Mom's?' and to understand facts about themselves, asking questions such as 'Can you walk?... Yes! What do you walk with?' 'Can you pick up things?... Yes! What do you pick up things with?' For this purpose, behavioral modification techniques such as positive reinforcement, molding and chaining were used. Results were satisfactory. The data is presented in tables and graphs to allow the best comprehension to the reader.

    ABSTRACT: This report describes an epidemiological investigation of the autistic syndrome using new research diagnostic criteria (Denckla, 1986). The focus here is on the methods of screening and follow-up, and on a description of the cases identified within a circumscribed region of Nova Scotia. Autism, as defined by social deviance, language impairment and repetitive or ritualistic behaviours, has a prevalence of 10 per 10,000 and a male to female ratio of 2.5:1. These findings are discussed relative to those reported previously.

    ABSTRACT: In previous tests of the lowest level of a "theory of mind" (i.e. first-order belief attribution), 80% of autistic children were found to be impaired relative to a non-autistic mentally-handicapped control group. The present study examines the 20% of autistic children who have a theory of mind at the lowest level, and tests their ability to use a theory of mind at higher levels (i.e. second-order belief attribution). This autistic subgroup, in comparison to Down's Syndrome and normal control groups, was found to be severely impaired at the higher level. Autism is discussed as a possible case of specific developmental delay.
