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. Autism is also defined by its impact on speech, language and communication. Our team at Chatterbox has experience in dealing with Autism-related speech problems. Each treatment style and program must be tailored to suit the individual and this is something Chatterbox recognises and implements.
