Abstract

Autism Spectrum disorders (ASD) are group of disorders exhibits triads of symptoms like deficits in communication, social interaction and presence of stereotypic behaviors. Deficits in social reciprocity skills are the core feature of ASD. Studies have reported that parents being important participants in a communication context; the nature of parent-child interaction would be one of the important components that would affect the language acquisition process in children. The present study attempted to explore patterns of mother’s interaction with her child with Pervasive Developmental Disorders-Not Otherwise Specified and findings revealed that the style of mother’s interaction is different compared to normal children. So it can be hypothesized that the inadequate language in child was maintained because of mother’s poorer language modeling.
