Speech Pathology For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder can cause a person to have difficulty communicating and may affect their social skills. Autism Spectrum Disorders can include repetitive actions and obsessive interest, as well as other behaviours. These behaviours will vary depending on the person’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.
What speech problems might someone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience?
One of the defining factors of Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD is difficulty with language comprehension, speech and non- verbal 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.
Autism differs greatly in symptoms and severity. Below is a list of speech problems that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder may experience.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder are also likely to experience difficulty communicating with others. Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD patients may have some or all of these communication problems that can be managed by a Speech Therapist or Occupational Therapist.
