Language profile of Russian primary-school-aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a continuum of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impairments in social interaction, communication and repetitive / stereotype behavior (APA, 2013). It is known that ASD is a heterogeneous disorder which is caused by different genetic and neurobiological factors. Although language deficit is not a core symptom in ASD, about 75% of children with autism have language impairment (Kjelgaard & Tager-Flusberg, 2001; Lindgren et al., 2009).

The goal of the present project is to assess the language abilities in Russian primary-school-aged children with ASD (7-to-11-year-old), using the Test for the assessment of language development in Russian KORABLIK. It is the first project in Russia which aims to assess all language levels (phonology, vocabulary, grammar, discourse) in both production and comprehension in a representative group of children with ASD (N > 80).

The results of the project will help to understand the extent of language impairments in Russian primary-school-aged children with ASD as well as to highlight the subgroups according to language profiling. Also, we will show how these subgroups are associated with such non-language abilities as non-verbal IQ or severity of autistic traits.
