Pragmatic disorder of monolingual and bilingual children with autism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Children with autism show pragmatic disorder in their language and communication regardless of the structural language skills, i.e., morpho-syntax and phonology. Pragmatic impairment is observed very early in children with autism even before the evolvement of language skills. For example, high-risk infants who were later diagnosed with autism showed significant delays in communicative gestures
at 12 months (Talbott, Nelson, & Tager-Flusberg, 2015). Here I discuss language
tests and tasks that explore pragmatic skills, and their importance for assessment
bilingual children with autism.
