This study is a follow-up based on research conducted by Horner and Whiten in 2005. Nearly identical methods and materials from that study were used to compare the over-imitation behaviors of preschool children with autism to age-matched typically developing (TD) children. Contrary to the hypothesis, the children with autism were found to over-imitate at the same rates as the TD group. However, several limitations were found in this study that may have influenced the results, including small sample size, test location, and previous training. Keywords: autism spectrum disorders, imitation, over-imitation, emulation
