New Delhi: A new study by researchers in Italy has revealed that kids with autism see shadows differently from their counterparts. Umberto Castiello, a neuropsychologist at the University of Padua in Italy, and colleagues found that while people can look at the shadow of an object and often figure out what the object is, shadows interfere with how autistic children recognize objects.
During the study, the children sometimes required snacks, and the researchers learned that autistic children typically have specific rules regarding food that should not be violated. Castiello said that the findings regarding the shadows suggest that when one wants to teach children with autism, one might want to provide rooms with multiple light sources that minimize shadows, reducing distractions. The findings appear online in May in the journal PLoS ONE. ANI
