Understanding Actions, States, and Events: Verb Learning in Children with Autism
Debate regarding the ability of children with autism to acquire verbs is both limited and inconclusive. This book explores this understudied area of language development in autism to answer the question: How do children with autism learn the meaning of verbs? The approach presents a critical survey of qualitative and quantitative research on verb acquisition in autism, assessing the theories of language acquisition in typical development, including available empirical research. This investigation is among the first studies of its type, offering new insights into the process of language acquisition in autism.
