Toward better characterization of restricted and unusual interests in youth with autism. Autism : the international journal of research and practice Uljarevic, M., Alvares, G. A., Steele, M., Edwards, J., Frazier, T. W., Hardan, A. Y., Whitehouse, A. J. 2021: 13623613211056720


LAY ABSTRACT: Despite being highly prevalent among people with autism, restricted and unusual interests remain under-researched and poorly understood. This article confirms that restricted interests are very frequent and varied among children and adolescents with autism. It also further extends current knowledge in this area by characterizing the relationship between the presence, number, and type of restricted interests with chronological age, sex, cognitive functioning, and social and communication symptoms.
