Speech Pathology For Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can impact a person’s communication and social skills. Autism Spectrum Disorders can include repetitive actions and obsessive interest, as well as other behaviours. These behaviours will vary depending on the person’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. Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy can work to address the issues experienced.
Autism differs greatly in symptoms and severity. The following list outlines speech problems that can be experienced by children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder are also likely to experience difficulty communicating with others. Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD patients may have some or all of these communication problems that can be managed by a Speech Therapist or Occupational Therapist.
