Sammanfattning

The present study investigates the relation between pretend play and parents’ verbal comments in relation to joint attention and recall memory in a group of low functioning children with autism. Twenty children with autism participated (mean age = 5:9 years; language age = 2:6 years, mental age = 3:9 years). Recall memory were assessed by deferred imitation of actions with objects. Initiating and responding to joint attention (IJA and RJA) was measured with the ESCS. Duration of the children’s pretend play and frequencies of parents’ synchronized and unsynchronized comments were measured in free play. Pretend play had positive correlations with recall memory and IJA. Parents’ synchronized comments correlated positively with high-level IJA, while unsynchronized comments correlated negatively with recall memory. Spontaneous pretend play are related to both early cognitive and social abilities in autism. Parents’ comments during play had positive or negative relation to children abilities depending on their focus.
