The present study investigated the developmental trajectories affiliated with various types of imitation. Imitative performances in infancy were observed in a prospective design, and retrospectively compared between ASD and typically developing (TD) infants.
Imitation and observational learning are important in aiding the attainment and portrayal of new behaviours, beginning as early as infancy (Meltzoff,p. Deferred imitation and mental representations were concepts by developmental psychologist Jean Piaget in his theory of infant cognitive development.

According to Jean Piaget's () approach, imitation is a manifestation of the child's intelligence; the development of imitation is closely related to cognitive development during the sensorimotor period. Piaget claims that the limits of each stage in the development of imitation are set by the infant's cognitive capacity at the time.
