Project description

Two studies are set up to address arithmetics in children with ASD. In study, the arithmetic difficulties of children with ASD and their siblings will be mapped in detail. The link with important underlying processes will be examined. In study 2, the prenumerical abilities of three groups of preschoolers will be longitudinally assessed and linked to their arithmetic abilities.
