Verbal Stereotypy in Childhood Emotional Disorder
All who work with severely disturbed schizophrenic children recognize the severe impairment in their ability to communicate. Bender  has given a comprehensive description of the kinds of speech disorder which occur, including partial mutism, echolalia, and perseverative utterances. More recently, there has been increasing interest in the speech of autistic children, taking the form of attempts to classify verbal behavior [2, 3] and to elicit speech, within a total therapeutic situation [4, 5].
