We certainly need alot more research to answer this question definitively, but I can tell you about the research I've done in this area so far. For my dissertation, I looked at fluency of speech in children with Asperger's. Among a group of 12 students in grades 4-7, 4 of these 12 had diagnosable fluency issues: one just stuttering, one just cluttering, and two with stuttering and cluttering. I happen to think cluttering is more common than we realize in the autism spectrum population, but time and future research will tell. Thanks for your question.
