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. It may include repetitive actions, obsessive interests and other behaviours which differ across individuals depending on the nature of their 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.
