Alexithymia and Emotion Recognition in People with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Review

Abstract: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder involving social-communication deficits, and rigid and repetitive behaviours. Individuals with ASD also demonstrate emotion-processing deficits, such as difficulties recognizing their own or others’ emotions. There is evidence to suggest that co-occurring alexithymia, or difficulties recognizing emotions within oneself, and not ASD may account for these difficulties. This paper reviews the literature about alexithymia to better understand emotion recognition skills in ASD. Implications are discussed in terms of possible therapeutic interventions involving alexithymia, which may improve emotional and social outcomes among those with ASD. Written by Ruby Jamil, M.A., and  Anne-Marie DePape, Ph.D. This PDF article is available for download only.   Jamil and DePape - Alexithymia and Emotion Recognition in People with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Review, 2017 PDF
