Abstract

The 6-year-old boy ran into my office and immediately, without making eye contact and without showing any interest in the examiner, rushed for the small objects on the table and began quickly but carefully carrying them to another slightly smaller table on an adjoining wall, one by one. Finished, he carried them back to the table, one by one, in exactly the same order.
