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 recognises that each person is unique and must tailor their treatment program to them.
What speech difficulties 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. Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy are both options to address these issues.
Autism symptoms and severity can vary greatly. 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.
