Children with Autism

We understand the unique behavioral and communication needs of children with Autism.

There are many ways that autism can affect a child’s communication abilities; children with autism may have problems with both verbal and nonverbal communication and may have difficulties with social interaction. Your child with autism may present with the following communication challenges:

  • Your child is non-verbal; he or she does not use words to communicate.
  • Your child often repeats what another person has said.
  • Your child has trouble with conversational skills, including staying on topic in conversation or pausing to let another take a turn.

  • Your child has difficulty using eye contact appropriately.
  • Your child memorizes things s/he has heard without seeming to understand what they mean.

Speech and language therapy is often a key part of the treatment plan for a child with autism. We can work with your child, your family, and your child’s team to best support their communication needs.

If your child has been diagnosed with autism, let us answer your questions about communication development and help you access funding for their speech therapy.
