Our results show that a slower response speed, not accuracy, on executive function (EF) tasks is related to better social interaction in school-age children with ASD. Children with ASD reduce their response speed to maintain good accuracy. Therefore, the response speed could be a correlate of social motivation and communication for school-age children with ASD and should be included in their evaluation for better intervention planning.
