Aims: After training motor learning with one organ transfers to the other organ. Considering Carpus Callosum deficit in children with ASD, this study was aimed to investigate intermanual transfer of motor learning from right hand to left hand and vice-versa in children with ASD compared to their typical matched peers.

Method: In this randomized clinical trial study, 31 boys with ASD and typical peers were selected by purposed sampling method from Najafabad elementary schools from February to May 2011. Participants were screened using Autism Spectrum Screening Questionnaire (ASSQ). Serial reaction time task was used for group comparison. Data were entered to SPSS 19 statistical software after collection and were analyzed using repeated measure ANOVA, paired T-test, and two-way ANOVA.

Results: There were no significant difference between two groups in transfer accuracy from right hand to the left (p=0.191), transfer speed from right hand to the left ( p=0.095), transfer accuracy from left hand to the right (p=0.052), and also transfer speed from left hand to the right (p=0.459).

Conclusion: Intermanual transfer of learning from right to the left hand and vice versa is intact in children with ASD.
