Perceptual abnormalities are a common feature of the autobiographical accounts of individuals with autism. These include fragmented perception and intense experience of normally unnoticed aspects of the environment, and have been attributed to a weak drive
for central coherence. However, it is only recently that these peculiarities have started to be systematically explored as non-triad features of autism. The aim of the present research was to investigate perceptual discrimination between matched autistic (n = 20), learning disabled (n = 25) and normal (n = 25) control groups using a standardized perception measure (i.e. the Children’s Embedded Figures Test) and an experimental stimulus using point light display depicting biomechanical motion to measure lower levels of processing. The present paper describes the results obtained using this experimental design and summarizes the implications for clinical research targeting early and pre-verbal diagnosis of autism using point light stimuli and habituation paradigms.
