This book presents the current state of knowledge and recent advances on three topics in research on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): the (debated) existence of profiles of abilities, the role of bilingualism, and the impact of interactive technologies. It includes six chapters that cover: a review of morphosyntactic and phonological abilities in monolingual and bilingual children on the autism spectrum; the relation between extra-linguistic factors – intellectual abilities, severity of autism trait – and language skills; an experimental study that aims to identify profiles in children with autism; and current advances on the use of interactive technologies for assessing and training language abilities in ASD. This book will be useful to anyone interested in language acquisition and language development in autism.
