Echoic and Self-Echoic Responses in Children
Esch, John W.; Mahoney, Amanda M.; Kestner, Kathryn M.; LaLonde, Kate B.; Esch, Barbara E.
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v29 p117-123 2013
Eleven typically developing children were assessed on the accuracy of prompted self-echoic responses following a 5-s delay from their initial echoic response, replicating procedures in Esch, Esch, McCart, and Petursdottir (2010) that compared discrepancies between echoic and self-echoic scores of autistic and typically developing children following a 2-s delay. We compared the two studies in terms of age, level tested, and echoic/self-echoic discrepancy scores. Age and test level differences were found to be statistically significant. Results are discussed in terms of discrepant self-echoic performance and self-echoic rehearsal as it relates to participant age, test level, motivating variables, and the development of complex behavior.
