Video Summary

Dr. Smith describes how to differentiate the flexible and varied affectionate actions of typically developing children from the tolerance or avoidance of affection often evident in children at risk for an autism spectrum disorder.

"...during a routine assessment of autism, I might ask this father about his son's affectionate behavior."
— Christopher Smith, PhD
