Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between emotional adjustment and social skills and the relationship between parents’ socio-demographic characteristics in primary school students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The sample of the study consisted of 60 elementary school students, 30 normal developmental and 30 diagnosed with ASD who were educated in primary schools, who were their parents allowed and accessible. For personal information “personal information form”, for social skills, “Marmara Social-Emotional Adjustment Scale” and for emotion adjustment skills “emotion regulation scale” were applied in this study. In the analysis of the obtained data, two independent samples t test, ANOVA test and Pearson correlation techniques were used. According to the findings of the study, primary school students diagnosed with ASD had moderate emotion adjustment and social skills. It was concluded that the emotional adjustment and social skill level of the children diagnosed with ASD did not show a significant difference to the class of the child, mother’s level of education, maternal marital status and maternal working status; social skill level is significantly associated with the child’s age. In the study, a positive and significant relationship was found between emotion adjustment and social skill level and the results were found to be generally parallel to the literature.

Abstract

Semantic fluency tests are frequently used both in clinical and experimental studies with the purpose of assessing cognitive functions. Since demographic variables have quite an explanatory effect on cognitive functions, this study aims to investigate the predictor power of the demographic variables on semantic fluency scores. 389 healthy adults aged between 50and84 who had education up to24years participated in the study. The participants were asked to produce as many names as possible in one minute. When the results are examined, it has been observed that as the education increased, so did the number of words. Also as age increased, the number of words decreased. The education has been found to be effective on categorical error. The findings that have been acquired from this study demonstrate that education and age have an explanatory effect on these tests. Therefore, it will be important to take these variables into consideration when these tests, which are frequently used in clinics, are carried out for an accurate cognitive assessment.
