Children with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) or Asperger's Syndrome, usually benefit from speech pathology intervention. Speech pathology can help in the areas of Communication and Social skills.
At Talk Time, we utilise the child's strengths (such as being visual learners) to maximise their communication and social skill success.
Children with Autism frequently have difficulties with receptive and expressive language skills, speech difficulties and social skills. Some children benefit from Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC), which supports communication through technology or visuals.
Talk Time Speech and Language Pathology recognises the importance of personally tailored assessment and treatment plans to suit the needs of your child, and the preferences of the family.
We have experience in providing assessment and therapy for speech, language, social skills and AAC for children with Autism and their families.
