Diamond hypothesized that children with autism might have a similar problem in grasping the conceptual connections between physically unconnected things. She predicted that by physically connecting items that are meant to be conceptually connected, some children with autism would be able to grasp concepts and understand connections that had eluded them. Thus, her hypothesis was that children with autism (even preschoolers with mild developmental delays) ARE capable of deducing abstract rules (such as same or different) if there is a direct, physical connection between stimuli and rewards. Most behavioral training with children with autism or developmental delays has not considered whether it matters if cue and referent are physically connected. It would be wonderful if making such a simple change could enable these children to grasp concepts previously thought to be beyond their ability.
