ASD very high "sing song" voice

DS3 recently got his ASD diagnosis at 32 months. The paed described his voice as "sing song". He is becoming more verbal again after several months post regression when he said very little, but his voice seems to be getting much higher in tone (its also less clear than before his regression). I have come across this when reading about ASD but wondered if other children had a very high voice and whether it righted itself or they had any suggestions about how to make him speak lower - we are talking bizarrely high here!

Very interesting.
Although i have no answers because my ds is not yet 4, he has mild asd.
I can say my ds has got a funny kind of voice,
first he doesn't sound many consonants and that makes it hard to understand him.
Plus his voice can sound muffled, a bit like the voice of deaf people, yet he can be quite loud and has a piercing shriek when he gets going!
But when he talks he puts an emphasis on the last sound of many word which gives it a sing song effect.
His voice is quite unique! wink

It's funny I can comment on these threads, because I am assured that DD does not have ASD (although does have traits hmm) but one of the things I noticed about her is that she has a very sing song voice. Not much help as to why, though.

Interesting thread. My dd has AS and she has a very 'young' voice for her age -it's hard to describe, really, but it is 'different'.
