|DEFINITION (ALTERNATIVE): Austism causes difficulties for kids to talk with other people and express themselves using words. Kids who have autism usually keep to themselves and many can't communicate without special help. This definition is from http://kidshealth.org/kid/health_problems/brain/autism.html.|
|CONTEXTUAL EXPLANATION: |
The answer is obviously the red cupboard since Sally has no knowledge of the fact that Annie has moved the ball into the blue cupboard.
However, autistic children have difficulties realizing that Sally does not think like themselves and often choose that Sally will look in the blue cupboard.
