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).
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.
