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