Question about echolalia


Well-Known Member
I never had echolalia during childhood, but I started having echolalia as I got older. What does that mean?

I started to constantly copy cat sounds, as I also like cats, although I try to hide my echolalia, because I am worried that some people might be a annoyed by it.
When I was younger and hearing good, I'd overhear people talk behind my back, not always understanding the social implications, I would repeat phrases i heard over and over....

Sadly I still don't always get it,
Even though I have history of communication delay, sensory issues and repetitive behaviors, I never had echolalia until late adolescence.

It is kind of recently that I started to copy sounds of mice, birds and cats, and I wonder what that means, because, most of the time, it's kind of recently.
