AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

Speech Pathology For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect a person’s communication ability and social skills. Autism Spectrum Disorder may manifest in repetitive actions, obsessive behaviours and other behaviours that can vary depending on the individual’s Autism. Autism is also defined by its impact on speech, language and communication. Our team at Chatterbox has experience in dealing with Autism-related speech problems. Each treatment style and program must be tailored to suit the individual and this is something Chatterbox recognises and implements.

Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD (ASD) can be characterised by difficulty in language comprehension, speech and nonverbal communication. This could mean that an individual may experience difficulties with social interaction. Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy are both options to address these issues.
