Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) proves to have great potential for investigating the white matter network of the brain. The ability to study these pathways may offer important insight into the neurological differences of people with communication disorders. However, due to the high level of...
This is a resource for parents of children with physical limitations. Typically developing children learn and develop their cognitive, language, social, and motor skills by interacting with their environment. For example, playing with toys and physically manipulating objects help children learn...

Exploring Pragmatic Language Dysfunction in High Functioning Speakers with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Reliability Study for Transcription using Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts (SALT)Download
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) commonly experience difficulties with pragmatic language use. To determine how cognitive load affects the pragmatic language use of high-functioning children with ASD, 11 children between the ages of 7 and 12 and diagnosed with ASD performed...
The Development of Idiom Comprehension in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
This project is concerned with the development of idiom comprehension in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The performance of four children between the ages of 6 and 13 years, with High Functioning Autism (HFA), was compared on different idiom interpretation tasks. The three idiom...
