Traduction et adaptation du Faux Pas Test et faits cliniques

Abstract : A deficit in the theory of mind in the field of high functional autism and Asperger syndrome has been recognized. To date, recognized analytic tools for the assessment of the different degrees of the theory of mind are lacking. That is why we have decided to translate and adapt an English test designed for school children in their second to fifth years of primary school: the "Faux Pas Test", created in 1999 by S. Baron-Cohen and al. This test, constituted of 10 stories, evaluates the ability to detect the characters' inappropriate behavior (faux-pas) in everyday life situations and permits to assess the various degrees of the theory of mind. The prospective study, based on a control group of 127 children and a group of 11 autistic children, allowed us to verify the clinical reliability of this test on French study cases with a possibility of future calibration.
