Enhancing children’s communication and social interaction abilities through personalised speech therapy programs. 

Autism Speech Therapy For Children

Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect a person’s communication abilities and social skills. It may also involve various behaviours, which may differ from person to person, such as repetitive actions and obsessive interests. 

A spectrum categorises autism because it varies widely in its presentation and severity. It may manifest in different ways like trouble forming relationships and interacting with others, intense focus on specific activities or subjects, and resistance to change. Because each child is unique and as autism can differ significantly, tailored early intervention and support may be beneficial in enhancing their growth and development.

Our speech therapists are experienced in treating speech and language difficulties that are part of autism. At Chatterbox, we can support you and your child to work towards enhancing their abilities and overall quality of life.

Communication Difficulties That Someone With Autism May Experience

A child with autism spectrum disorder may have trouble with areas of communication such as language comprehension, speech, and non-verbal communication, which may mean that social interaction and community involvement are challenging for them. Our speech therapist can work to address these issues and may do so in collaboration with therapists from other disciplines in the clinic, such as our music and occupational therapists.

Speech and language

Speech difficulties that children with autism may face can vary greatly. Some ways these may present include:

  • Expressing themselves using shrieks, cries, loud sounds, or shouting.
  • Speaking in a monotone way.
  • Lacking expression to suit what they are saying.
  • Babbling words.
  • Humming.
  • Being non-verbal
  • Inability to maintain a conversation.


Children with autism may find communicating with others challenging. They may experience communication and social issues such as:

  • Reduced conversational skills, including minimal or no eye contact.
  • Trouble understanding the meaning of conversations.
  • Difficulty with comprehending the language used to speak to them.
  • Inability to maintain a conversation.

Involving speech therapists in the treatment plan for children with autism may be significantly advantageous due to their specific knowledge and skills in the areas of language and communication. Our speech therapists work with children of all ages to find the most suitable way to improve their speech and interaction skills, tailoring a program that caters for their unique needs, preferences, and goals.

We utilise evidence-based methods and resources to deliver treatment that promotes development in a safe and supportive environment. Some techniques that may be used in your child’s speech therapy session include:

Speech therapy can be an important part of helping children with autism to reach their goals. We offer online therapy services as well as services within our clinics in Rosehill, Bella Vista, Oran Park, Penrith and Kingswood to provide treatment to as many people as possible, no matter their location. 

Speech therapy can nurture a child’s communication skills and may enhance their ability to interact with others.

We can develop programs that support children with a broad array of abilities and goals, which means that speech therapy may be advantageous for many children.
