Echolalic Responses by a Child with Autism to Four Experimental Conditions of Sociolinguistic Input.
Violette, Joseph; Swisher, Linda
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v35 n1 p139-47 Feb 1992
The immediate verbal imitations (IVIs) of a boy (age five) with autism and echolalia were studied, with variables of linguistic familiarity and instructor's style of directiveness being manipulated. The occurrence of IVIs was related to uncertain or informative events, and was significantly greater when lexical stimuli were unknown and presented in a highly directive style. (Author/JDD)
