Abstract

This study is the first to examine the developmental relationships between core cognitive atypicalities in autism. Rather than viewing problems in ToM, EF and CC as co-occurring and independent atypicalities in autism, the findings suggest that early domain-general skills play a critical role in shaping the developmental trajectory of children?s ToM. It therefore represents a substantial contribution to our knowledge of the cognitive functioning of children with autism. I designed, and secured funding for, the study, tested all children with autism, analysed the data, and wrote the paper. Impact factor = 3.412
