The aim is to examine how far scores on the Psychoeducational Profile (PEP) predicts scores on the Adolescent and Adult Psychoeducational Profile (AAPEP) 5 years later. One subscale eye-hand coordination significantly predicts the scores on three subscales of the AAPEP: Vocational Skills, Independent Functioning, and Vocational Behavior. Imitation predicts Interpersonal Behavior. Fine Motor predicts Leisure Skills and Cognitive Performance predicts Functional Communication. Results are interpreted in terms of the implications for educational intervention programs with autistic adolescents and adults.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47963||ISSN:||0162-3257||DOI:||10.1007/BF01046107||Source:||Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders [ISSN 0162-3257], v. 23, n. 4, p. 653-664|
