Description

Open conference "Acoustic Prosodic Features in Children with Autism" with Professor Aya Awwad (Birzeit University).

Abstract:
Based on a case study, the lecture will discuss how the speech of children with autism spectrum disorders and typically developing children differ in terms of acoustic parameters such as pitch, duration, and intensity based on four language expression tasks that test the production of grammatical, pragmatic, and affective prosody. The lecture will also discuss how these differences in acoustic prosodic features translate into perception by non-clinically trained listeners.
