This week's trivia question: A new study finds toddlers' attention to high-pitched, sing-song speech -- or "baby talk" -- could provide an early diagnosis and treatment of a specific disorder. The study, published in JAMA Network Open, found lower levels of attention to a playful speech style, called motherese or parentese, could help diagnose language and social challenges in toddlers sooner. Motherese or parentese speech patterns are characterized by exaggerated intonation, simple grammar, high pitch and slow tempo. "If a toddler fixated on motherese speech at or below 30%, the probability of that toddler being accurately identified with this disorder was 94% and also signified an association with reduced social and language abilities," the study said. What is the disorder?
