Natural Language Acquisition on the Autism Spectrum
In Natural Language Acquisition on the Autism Spectrum, we are introduced to 'invisible' echolalia, the kind we barely pay attention to in our typically-developing youngsters. It slips under the radar, and we think nothing of it. But in autism, it's really late. And obvious. And seemingly pervasive. And that's the subject of this ground-breaking book. Echolalia in our kids with autism is just like the 'typical' variety, just later, much later. The good news, though, is that it communicates, and it jump-starts language development!
