Have you heard of it?

I was just reading a little bit about it on AutismSpeak.sorg and it has me wondering how common this is.

No I have never heard of this but read the article. It's something I will be sure to watch for in my son

I'll be watching for that as well.  My kiddo is already slow at getting certain things done, it'd be awful if he starts freezing up.

Jonathan is bouncy and not slow about things. Gabriella on the other hand takes her sweet time but I think that is more to annoy me than anything LOL

Well, they are (especially the NT ones) really good about trying to annoy us. ;)

I know of Schizophrenia Catatonia.  I could see this with certain spectrums of Autism.
