New research from Current Biology, reported in PsychCentral, looked at social imitative learning in both autistic and normally developing children.  Autistic kids tended to shortcut the solution to a task rather than imitating what the adult modeled while normally developing kids tended to complete the entire sequence of actions even though they knew that some of what they’d seen was “silly”.  More insight into how autistic children process and interpret visual learning cues.
