I think we can base on their hypothesis and employ some of the questions from each measurement test to continue investigating the correlation between BAP and attachment avoidance. Extraversion: Brian Barger & Jonathan Campbell & Christina Simmons found that children with autism tend to score lower on the level of extraversion. In their study, all parents need to complete the Inventory of Children’s Individual Differences- Short Form (ICID-S; Deal et al. 2007) to measure the level of extraversion.
