People with autism are often perceived to have atypical prosody. This, coupled with the language impairment that is a diagnostic feature of autism, raises questions about the relationship between prosody and language in language acquisition. Recent projects have investigated receptive and expressive prosody skills in school-age children with autism spectrum disorders and compared them with those of age-matched and language-matched typically-developing children. Results suggest that while some prosodic skills are preserved in autism, others are impaired; and that although there are strong correlations between prosody and language skills the relationship between the two is complex and requires further research
