Atypical disfluency has been documented through case studies and has been described as final part-word repetition or “rhyme repetition”. These disfluencies do not appear to be symptoms of stuttering (child onset fluency disorder). Symptoms have been observed in individuals with autism spectrum disorder as well as in neurotypical individuals. Our goal is to better understand features of atypical disfluency, its accompanying behaviors, and its response to traditional stuttering therapy.
