I enjoyed reading this article as well. It really helped put things into perspective about why individuals with ASD act the way they do sometimes. Also, that's a great question you have. In my opinion, these charactericts play a huge role in literarcy development. In the reading, Alex was not able to understand like all the other children why the female dog actually died. This can affect him in many ways. He may not be able to answer homework assignments about the story. He may not be able to talk about the story in a way that he understands with other students. He may even be made fun of for not getting it. I don't think one characteristic is more detrimental than the other, but I do believe they play an important role in literarcy development.

      I had never heard of these three theories before and you make a good point. Depending on which theory a child falls into, does this determine how we deliver instruction? There are so many... more
