Little Interest in Toy Frog
Children with autism may demonstrate a lack of interest in toys, even when asked to imitate interactions with the objects. After several demonstrations from both the evaluator, Connor, and his mother, Raquel, Evan shows little concern for the toy frog and fails to imitate Connor and Raquel's actions and vocalizations. Although Evan starts to smile and laugh when his mother makes the frog hop, he backs away from the toy when his mother offers him a turn.
