Autistic children with better motor skills are also better at socializing and communicating, according to a new study.
A new small study suggests that autistic children do things efficiently rather than socially, whereas normal children do things socially rather than efficiently.
When children are very small, even at the stage of their infancy, parents and babies communicate with each other through smiles, laughs and cooing at each other. However, scientists have questions as to how this kind of communication or interaction helps or effects the development of babies. "Parents tend to put a lot of emotional energy into these interactions," says University of Miami psychology professor Daniel Messinger. "And, the job of the baby is to do whatever they want, and they take that job very seriously."
Researchers from the University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) are today making a series of recommendations for NHS mental health trusts to change the way they collect and use patient feedback to improve the quality of care for inpatients.
