File:Opening a window to the autistic brain.jpg

Description "A child with autism (three years old) pointing to the fish in an aquarium." The photo demonstrates a controlled randomized test by Kasari, Stephanny Freeman and Tanya Paparella to determine whether intensive training in sharing attention (in this case, pointing at fish) and pretend playing can lay the groundwork for the acquisition of language skills and subsequent normal development.
