  1. ADI-R thresholds are shown in parentheses. Pearson chi-squared for group by gender was nonsignificant (value = 0.672, df = 1, two-sided asymptotic p = 0.412)
  2. p values indicate results for the independent t test statistic. ADI-R A social interaction, B communication and language, C restricted and repetitive behavior, D age of onset criterium
  3. *Statistically significant
