Can complementation training also enhance ToM in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? Thirty-three children with ASD (Mage = 8;11) and 20 younger ND peers (Mage = 4;3) were trained on sentential complements (4-6 weeks, 2-3 times per week, via the DIRE i-Pad App). Pre-training and post-training comparisons show that (1) training boosted both complementation and ToM performance across groups; (2) improvements remained 4-6 weeks after training ended; (3) participants with milder ASD symptoms made most gains. Training on sentential complements thus seems beneficial for addressing ToM difficulties in children with ASD, especially those with milder symptoms.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Durrleman, Stephanie</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Thommen, Evelyne</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bentea, Anamaria</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Delage, Hélène</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bentea, Anamaria</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Prisecaru, Andreea</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Durrleman, Stephanie</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-04-20T08:53:30Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Delage, Hélène</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-04-20T08:53:30Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Training Syntax to Enhance Theory of Mind in Children with ASD</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Thommen, Evelyne</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Prisecaru, Andreea</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
