Stimulus overselectivity, or the selective responding to narrow or irrelevant cues, may partially account for difficulties that students with autism face with generative language production. A body of literature exists that provides suggestions for its remediation. However, much of the research in this area has been basic in nature, with arbitrary stimuli presented in a discrete trial format. Research questions remain as to what role overselectivity plays in the natural environment. If overselectivity does play a significant role in language production in that setting, procedures need to be developed to evaluate, remediate, and prevent stimulus overselectivity in the natural environment. This article reviews the literature on overselectivity and makes suggestions for future research. **********
