Speech-Language Therapy for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children with ASD have social, communication, and language difficulties. Often characterized by repetitive or restrictive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities. Children may have difficulty using social skills to connect with other people or difficulty sharing focus with other individuals, playing with others, understanding feelings and making friends.
Children and adolescents with autism may require speech and language therapy to help with receptive or expressive language skills as well as social skills. Speech-language therapy addresses a range of challenges that are often faced by individuals on the autism spectrum. After an assessment is completed by a speech-language pathologist (SLP), speech therapy will target specific goals that will be functional for the individual.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, may also benefit from behaviour therapy. Our multidisciplinary team will always work together to help your child achieve his/her goals.
