    I think difficult child does this, but I just never knew. He does not do it all the time, but does it when he is frustrated or before the stimulant kicks in. He just cannot get words out, or repeats himself over and over. Is that what cluttering is?

    My daughter has cluttering and she repeats parts of words or phrases. She gets very frustrated. It does seem to be much worse with an heightened emotion. She does not do it when reading out loud. Only during conversation.

    I looked up echolalia, and that is defined by repeating noises that others make (or at least what my quick search turned up) and difficult child does not do this. He repeats himself. He went to walk the dog, and has just gotten his sisters old trac phone. He told me 3 or 4 times for me to call him when I wanted him to come home. He repeats himself even when I respond to him so you would think he knew I heard him. He really does not echo people.
