Prizant, Barry M.; Rydell, Patrick J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v27 n2 p183-92 Jun 1984
Fourteen functional categories of delayed echolalia in three autistic children (4-14 years old) were derived from videotape analyses. Individual differences in functional usage were apparent across Ss. Delayed echolalia varied along the dimensions of interactiveness, comprehension of the utterance produced, and relevance to linguistic or situational context. (Author/CL)
