Фонологическая дискриминация у детей с расстройствами аутистического спектра: пилотное исследование на материале русского языка
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by deficits in social interaction and the presence of stereotyped behavior, as well as intellectual problems and speech delay. In the present study, we examined low-level language processing in children with ASD, namely phoneme discrimination. We used a nonword repetition task which is the ‘gold standard’ for detecting specific language impairment. 15 children with ASD and 14 typically developing children participated in our study. The results showed that children with ASD have phonological processing deficit.
