Lack of motivation to share intentions: Primary deficit in autism?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (5):718-719 (2005)
Abstract
We review evidence regarding Tomasello et al.'s proposal that individuals with autism understand intentions but fail socially because of a lack of motivation to share intentions. We argue that they are often motivated to understand others but fail because they lack the perceptual integration skills that are needed to apply their basically intact theory of mind skills in complex social situations.
