Columbus IJ (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
Amanda Seidl , Purdue University, West Lafeyette, IN
This talk will examine whether speech processing style on a variety of speech processing tasks (both segmental and suprasegmental) interacts with diagnosis of autism, the presence/absence of specific autistic traits, as well as verbal and non-verbal IQ. Preliminary results indicate clear interactions between diagnosis and task performance style for both segmental and suprasegmental speech perception tasks regardless of IQ.
