The main aim of this study was to better our understanding of what and why comprehension in ASD by comparing performance of younger children with low-functioning autism, children with WS and children with TD matched for mental age on a behavioral task. This would allow to evaluate whether impairment in motor intention understanding during the observation of simple motor acts: (a) proved to be different in ASD and in WS on comparable groups; (b) would present in ASD a similar developmental pattern to the one found in previous studies.
