The Emerging Phonological System of an Autistic Child.
Wolk, Lesley; Edwards, Mary Louise
Journal of Communication Disorders, v26 n3 p161-77 Sep 1993
This case report provides a phonological investigation of the speech of an eight-year-old autistic boy. Speech was elicited using delayed imitation, object naming, and a connected speech sample. The subject's use of phonological processes resulted in extensive homonymy which contributed to severely reduced intelligibility. Both typical and unusual patterns of phonological development were observed. (Author/DB)
