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 can manifest as repetitive behaviours, obsessiveness, and other behaviour that vary from one person to the next depending on their 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?
People with Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD often experience difficulties with language comprehension, speech, and non-verbal communication. This could mean that an individual may experience difficulties with social interaction. Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy may be able to help.
Autism differs greatly in symptoms and severity. The following list outlines speech problems that can be experienced by children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
