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 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 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. The individual may have difficulty socialising. Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy may be able to help.
Autism symptoms and severity can vary greatly. Below is a list of speech problems that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder may experience.
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.
