Language Samples & Ecological Assessments
After you have the language sample, you can now categorize the unconventional verbal behaviour.
-immediate repetition of words or phrases
-significantly delayed repetition of words or phrases (hours, days, or weeks later)
From Prizant and Rydell (1984)
If it’s immediate echolalia there are two categories:
2. Noninteractive functions
If it’s delayed echolalia there are also two categories:
1. Interactive functions
2. Noninteractive function
Echolalia is more likely to occur in these conditions:
What is the communicative intent?
From Wetherby and Prizant (1989)
Determining the communicative function of the echoic utterances are done by examining the communication partner’s interpretation of and reaction to the behavioural act.
Interviewing the home and school team members to gain greater information about their interpretation of and reaction to the unconventional verbal behaviour is suggested. A functional assessment interview could be used to gather this information.
Another factor to consider for echolalia is the whether the unconventional verbal behaviour is challenging and who is it challenging for.
A functional behaviour assessment could be done to assist with determining those factors.
The last stage of assessment is looking at whether direct intervention is needed and/or wanted.
Once the language samples have been analyzed and coded, suggestions for either direct or indirect intervention can be made if the family or school feel it is beneficial.
The same procedure can be used in other situations as well, such as requesting for items, asking for attention, and others.
