dc.description.abstractThe effective encoding and interpretation of facial expressions is critical to inferring the intentions, motivation, and emotional state of others. Asperger syndrome (AS) is a pervasive, neurodevelopmental condition characterized by significant deficits in social interaction, impaired use of language, and stereotyped interests and activities. Deficient encoding and interpretation of facial expressions is likely related to the social difficulties experienced by those with AS. A video-based intervention administered via Internet is proposed for young children with AS. This research hopes to clarify the questions (1) are young children with AS able to interpret simple emotions and (2) can they learn the skills necessary to interpret complex emotions. Data will be analyzed using multivariate analysis of covariance.en
