I too have zero experience with this. All I can do is wish you the best of luck and hope for the best.

RE: Palilalia
Thanks guys. As of now we've plunged into kindergarten full steam ahead. He seems to be taking to it quite well and enjoying himself. Honestly I've noticed that he does it less and less as he gets along.

I think he's gonna be just fine. Thumbsup

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Palilalia
My 6yo son started repeating himself in a whisper recently as well. He's not diagnosed as anything, he's incredibly smart especially in math, has an advanced vocabulary, he has a very serious personality and can be so shy sometimes. I asked him why he whispers and he seemed pretty clueless about what I meant. I told him to stop doing it and later he told me he can't control it and doesn't even notice that he does it. I told the speech therapist at school and she never heard of it but will start researching. I made an appt w his pediatrician. Not sure what else to do

Welcome to TTA.

Sharing with parents in a similar situation is never a bad thing.

Perhaps you'd like to send evenheathen a private message to compare notes.

RE: Palilalia
So I stumbled on this forum looking up this new found word Palilalia. Tonight a lightbulb went off for me after hearing my 5 yo son “whisper” the ends of his sentences for the past week.

My daughter pointed it out recently then there it was.. I heard him. Shot me straight back to my childhood years, which I haven’t thought about this in 30 years!!! My eyes got big and the flood of emotion came back to me. I remember my sister always getting annoyed listening to me repeat the last few words on my sentences. I just never thought anything of it. Until tonight! My son is me 30 years later!
We have four kids and of those four he is the most like me. I was recently diagnosed ADHD and I know for a fact he has some sort of ADD as well.
He is a super bright kid! Speaking at the age of 10 months and full blown sentences at 15 months. In an advanced school and doing 1st grade work at the age of 5!
Has anyone come to a head on what this could be associated with?
I obviously grew out of my habit but was wondering what it is that brings a child to develop this Palilalia???

RE: Palilalia
Seriously, is there any possibility he's seen Brick on "The Middle" do it and has simply chosen to imitate him?

Have you simply asked him why he's doing it? Suggested he stop it? Can't really say it's an involuntary think rather than an intentional mimicry until/unless you address it with him.

I have a very grown relative who silently repeats everything said to her (as if she's moving her lips when she reads only she's doing it while listening). It is a strange habit that she is able to control when she thinks about it. And has gotten especially better since getting a hearing aid...

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
