by Cleinmark, Patricia D., S.D., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2015, 46; 1588447
Abstract (Summary)

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder experience anxiety at a higher rate than those in the general population. The relationship between the two disorders is not well understood. The current study examined the relationship between reported autism symptoms on the Social Responsiveness Scale and reported comorbid clinical anxiety. With limited previous research on this topic, the current study was exploratory in nature. It was unknown how the two groups would differ; however, it was hypothesized that children with anxiety would experience ASD symptoms differently than children without anxiety.
