Initial Approach
Physical Movement p  = 0.0012, F = 11.987 p  < 0.0001, F = 12.590 p = 0.1929, F = 0.371
Facial Expression p  = 0.0008, F = 12.792 p  < 0.0001, F = 26.616 p = 0.1583, F = 1.563
Eye Contact p  < 0.0001, F = 24.122 p  < 0.0001, F = 62.756 p = 0.1285, F = 1.612
Familiar Approach
Physical Movement p = 0.5093, F = 0.472 p  = 0.0003, F = 1.969 p  = 0.0002, F = 2.867
Facial Expression p  = 0.0018, F = 10.808 p  < 0.0001, F = 22.628 p  = 0.0019, F = 8.935
Eye Contact p  = 0.0005, F = 13.982 p  < 0.0001, F = 54.041 p  < 0.0001, F = 12.060
  1. Age was used as a co-variate in all analyses due to the fact that the FXS + ASD group was substantially older than both the typically developing group and FXS-only group
