Expressive language in male adolescents with fragile X syndrome and with and without comorbid autism - 2010 - Journal of Intellectual Disability Research 54 (3) 2010: 246-265 .

Points out that although approximately one-quarter of individuals with fragile X syndrome (FXS) meet diagnostic criteria for autism it is unclear whether individuals with comorbid FXS and autism are simply more severely affected than their peers with only FXS or whether they have qualitatively different profiles of behavioural impairments. Addresses this issue by examining variation in the FXS linguistic phenotype in males with FXS with and without autism. Assessed the syndrome-specificity of the expressive language impairment of both groups of those with FXS in relation to Down syndrome. Examined, also, the extent to which different language sampling contexts affected expressive language in each diagnostic group.
