Recherche sur le code analogique au sein d’une cohorte d’enfants autistes

Abstract : The mathematical knowledge and skills of children have been studied for about twenty years and have helped us to discover the mechanisms involved to acquire numbers and know how to use them on an everyday life level. However, the digital skills of children with autism have been rarely studied. Our study examined the analog code, which allows access to the meaning of numbers, and the symbolic code, which is a learning process, to determine if any of these codes could be altered. This study includes 31 children with autism aged between 6 and 11 years old. The children were tested on tests using the analogue code (subitizing and estimation) and the symbolic code (Indo-Arab code). We wanted to know if the analog code, which is a predictor of mathematical success, was deficient compared to the symbolic code. Then, we wanted to know if the results obtained in the various tests were correlated to the intellectual quotient of the children. The first results show that overall the analog code is deficient compared to the symbolic code which seems to be preserved. In addition, a correlation between test results and IQ scores is noted.
