Abstract

Research study among children with autism had shown impairment in motor imitation in addition to social disability. Currently, imitation becomes an important issue which can be seen as new procedure to detect early childhood autism. Hence, this paper proposed the used of motor imitation action by analyzing the brain waves frequency. Experimental results revealed that control and autistic children both perform the motor imitation well but the brain activation for both group are different. Autistic children demonstrate a very high intensity brain activation indicating they are struggling to do the action. This illustrates some potential methods that can be extended in detecting autism for early childhood.
