Hi Jada and Lindsey, Good question. We don't have any hard evidence regarding the prevalence of stuttering symptoms in PDD-NOS. I have seen this quite commonly working as a therapist, and lately, more and more therapists are jumping in on the special interest listservs to say they are seeing it, too. So, it is out there, and is something speech-language pathologists should always be aware they may encounter in this population. As to what the numbers are for how common this is, hopefully time and research will tell.
