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 Disorders can include repetitive actions and obsessive interest, as well as other behaviours. These behaviours will vary depending on the person’s Autism. Another defining factor of Autism is the impact it has on speech and language. Our team at Chatterbox has experience in dealing with Autism-related speech problems. Chatterbox knows that every treatment must be customised to the individual.
What speech problems might someone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience?
Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD (ASD) can be characterised by difficulty in language comprehension, speech and nonverbal communication. The individual may have difficulty socialising. Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy are both options to address these issues.
Autism differs greatly in symptoms and severity. The list below describes speech problems that may be experienced by children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
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.
