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 may manifest in repetitive actions, obsessive behaviours and other behaviours that can vary depending on the individual’s Autism. Autism can also impact 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 difficulties might someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), experience?

Autism differs greatly in symptoms and severity. Below is a list of speech problems that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder may experience.
