The present study attempted to explore patterns of mother’s interaction with her child with Pervasive Developmental Disorders-Not Otherwise Specified and findings revealed that the style of mother’s interaction is different compared to normal children. So it can be hypothesized that the inadequate language in child was maintained because of mother’s poorer language modeling.
