Autism

My Child was just diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – do I need a Speech  Language Pathologist (SLP)?

Yes.

If your child has ASD, he/she has social communication difficulties.  These might include:

  • joint attention,
  • referencing and eye contact,
  • shared enjoyment of activities
  • having difficulty playing with peers,
  • taking turns in conversations
  • understanding other people’s intentions
  • understanding other people’s perspectives

In addition, your child might have difficulties with:

  • motor speech skills (articulation of speech sounds),
  • understanding language
  • using language
  • telling stories
  • understanding jokes

Some children with ASD might be non verbal and thus need an augmentative and alternative communication system.   These systems are designed by SLPs.

An SLP is trained to assess, diagnose and treat the above goals.
