Understanding the mechanisms of emotion production and emotion processing is important for addressing social communication deficits in ASD. Our results suggest that prompted emotional expressions in individuals with ASD are considered less genuinely expressed than those of their typically developing peers. This authenticity is related to neural responses in social processing brain regions. These findings offer insight for OTs to better treat and develop therapies to address social deficits in ASD.
