About the Role of Echolalia in the Continuum of Language Development

In this video, Dr. Gladys Williams creates a dialogue around a study focused on comparing the intraverbal and echolalic behavior of neurotypical children to that of children with autism, and the correlation between language skills and echolalia, in an attempt to illuminate the curiosities of echolalia to special needs practitioners. She defines echoic, intraverbal, and echolalic behavior, details the study’s procedures and results, and discusses the verbal continuum from its history to the future of its research.
