The purpose of this research study was to evaluate the communication of individuals with Sotos syndrome in order to better characterize common speech and language patterns. Sixteen children with Sotos syndrome received an in-depth communication assessment using standardized procedures. Assessments of speech skills, language skills, voice, fluency, and social-pragmatic interactions were completed. Results of the evaluations indicated that individuals with Sotos syndrome are prone to: (a) language impairments (particularly expressive), (b) speech sound production impairments, (c) voice impairments, (d) dysfluencies (stuttering), and (e) average social-behavioral pragmatic interaction characteristics.
