Why Do Autistic People Repeat Words & Phrases? What’s Echolalia? – An Autistic Perspective









Music –


  1. WordPress just crashed on me and I lost a long comment, so briefly: thanks for the interesting videos (yours and Amethyst’s, in the comments). My son (ASD diagnosed) repeats environmental sounds (immediately) and extended transport announcements (delayed). I (no diagnosis) sometimes (immediately) repeat phrases with odd intonation; stock phrases also slip out all the time when I’m alone (or think I am!), e.g. ‘Basically, it’s just a case of’. (I’ll say that many times every day, often without completing it, but hadn’t thought of it as possible delayed echolalia before now. Maybe everyone does that: I don’t know.)
