Acoustics and Asperger's

It's not enough to simply say that individuals with Asperger's have "odd speech."  We professionals need to identify what exactly is odd about it and this is where "good science" is needed.  I'm working with Murray Alpert at NYU Medical Center to analyze Asperger speech patterns via computer analysis of digital audiotapes.  Frankly, I'm surprised that psycholinguistic folks have ignored this area of inquiry.

It's a beautiful sunny day in Keene today and an autistic college student of mine was particularly bouyant in greeting me a few moments ago.  Does this say something about responsivity to environment?
