This chapter concerns various atypical conditions in children and how the development of prosody may be affected in them. Methods for evaluating prosodic ability are considered, taking into account receptive and expressive ability. Brief summaries of research into several conditions in which prosodic development is affected are given, including hearing impairment, language disorder, Down syndrome, childhood onset fluency disorder, Williams syndrome and a more detailed treatment of autism spectrum disorder. The chapter concludes with a brief summary of current strategies for rehabilitation.
