Summary

The purpose of this study is to describe facial, behavioral and physiologic (heart rate) reactivity of children with autism aged 3 to 6 years old, during a painful stimulation (venepuncture). Children will be videotaped before, during and after a venepuncture. Each recording will be rated with the FACS (Facial Action Coding System) and the NCCPC (Non Communicating Children's Pain Checklist).

Description

Children with autism will be matched with children with mental retardation and children without developmental disorder. Matching will be established according the developmental age of children with autism.

A childhood disorder predominately affecting boys and similar to autism (AUTISTIC DISORDER). It is characterized by severe, sustained, clinically significant impairment of social interaction, and restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior.

Wide continuum of associated cognitive and neurobehavioral disorders, including, but not limited to, three core-defining features: impairments in socialization, impairments in verbal and nonverbal communication, and restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviors. (from DSM-V)

Behavioral science applied with the aim of improving socially important issues such as behavior problems and learning. For individuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities including AUTISM, techniques can be categorized as comprehensive or focused.
