Speech Pathology For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect communication skills and social skills. Autism Spectrum Disorder may manifest in repetitive actions, obsessive behaviours and other behaviours that can vary depending on the individual’s Autism. Another defining factor of Autism is the impact it has on speech and language. 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.
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. This means that the individual might experience difficulty with social interaction. Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy are both options to address these issues.
Autism symptoms and severity can vary greatly. Below are some speech issues that might be experienced in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
