Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine differences between Taiwanese children with autism and their typically developing peers on the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). Twenty-six children with autism of normal IQ were included, and matched for chronological age with 52 controls. The WCST scores of the typically developing children were significantly higher for categories completed and percent conceptual level than in the autism group. Scores on perseverative responses, perseverative errors, the number of trials to complete the first category and non-perseverative errors were significantly higher in the autism group. The implications of these findings are discussed.
