Conversational Characteristics of Children with Fragile X Syndrome: Repetitive Speech.
Belser, Richard C.; Sudhalter, Vicki
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n1 p28-38 Jan 2001
Comparison of the production of repetitive speech during conversations in 30 people with either fragile X syndrome, autistic disorder, or mental retardation not caused by fragile X found repetitive speech more prevalent among those with fragile X. Results support the hypothesis that such speech dysfluency reflects the effects of physiological arousal caused by hypersensitivity to social and sensory stimuli. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
