In the February 2021 issue of The Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, the article “Socioeconomic Factors Account for Variability in Language Skills in Preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorders” by Olson et al.1 was published with images for Figures 1 and 2 in black and white instead of color as intended. Those color images have been updated in the online version of the article, and are presented here as well.

Figure 1.
Figure 1.:
Distributions of socioeconomic variables. Frequency distribution of (A) MEL, (B) INR (household income adjusted by family size as a ratio of federal poverty threshold; an INR of one indicates living at the poverty threshold), and (C) median income (postal code based). A–C, The distribution curve for ASD, TD and combined ASD 1 TD groups is represented with red, blue, and black lines, respectively. D–F, Comparisons of (D) maternal education, (E) INR, and (F) median income (postal-code based) in TD and ASD groups. MEL among ASD participants was significantly lower than that of TD participants (t (104) 5 3.23, p < 0.002). ASD, autism spectrum disorders; INR, income-to-needs ratio; MEL, Maternal Education Level; TD, typically developing.
Figure 2.
Figure 2.:
Associations between socioeconomic variables and RL and EL. A–D, Association between MEL and (A) EL skills as measured with MSEL EL, (B) parent-rated EL skills as reported on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, (C) RL as measured with MSEL RL, and (D) parent-rated RL as reported on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales. E, Association between INR and EL skills as measured with MSEL EL. ASD, autism spectrum disorders; EL, expressive language; INR, income-to-needs ratio; MEL, Maternal Education Level; MSEL, Mullen Scales of Early Learning; RL, receptive language; TD, typically developing.
