Speech Pathology For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect communication skills and social skills.

Autism is also defined by its impact on speech, language and communication. The team at Chatterbox are experienced in treating speech problems related to Autism. Chatterbox recognises that each person is unique and must tailor their treatment program to them.
