In this talk I will be exploring the topic of heterogeneity in language development and language outcomes among individuals with autism spectrum conditions. Although variability of language ability is widely attested in this population, much of the research on language in ASC has been focused on a relatively restricted subset of the spectrum. I will discuss both methodological issues related to assessing diverse profiles of autism as well as benefits that may be drawn. I argue that variability may be an assent in better understanding underlying cognitive processes.
Specifically in this talk I will explore the topic of comprehension and expression of referential expressions in autism spectrum conditions, drawing on previous work developed in my doctoral thesis and finally touch on new ideas on development of non-literal language understanding across individuals with ASC.
