Speech and Communication Problems for People with Autism

Autism can affect a person’s speech, language, and communication skills in many ways that prevent them from communicating with people and understanding others.

For speech problems, some people with autism may:

1. Don’t talk at all
2. Only be able to utter grunts, harsh sounds, shrieks, and cries
3. Musically hum or talk
4. Babble
5. Use robot-like words or foreign words
6. Echolalia (copies what other people is saying)
7. Speaks correctly, but the tone is incorrect

There are also times when some people with autism cannot produce the right sounds to communicate with people; often, it can be hard to understand as well.

Communication-wise, they may display the following tendencies:

1. Can’t manage conversational skills, such as eye contact and supporting gestures
2. Can’t understand the meaning of words outside the examples they were first given
3. Can memorize things they hear, but they do not know what was being said
4. Often uses echolalia as a way to speak to others
5. Can’t understand the meaning of words or symbols
6. Do not have creative language skills

When you reach out to us here at Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC, we will be able to determine what speech and communication problems have to be considered before speech therapy comes to play.

Kinds of Speech Therapy for Treating Autism

speech therapyIt is recommended that those with autism be given speech therapy as early as possible because the signs can immediately be recognized when a child is 18 months old. Speech therapy at an early age reduces the impact of autism greatly, especially when it comes to social communication and language skills.

Speech therapists will assess the best way to improve the child’s quality of life through speech therapy and have the people around the patient to assist in the therapy.

Some of the techniques that can be done for speech therapy for autism include:

1. Electronic “talkers”
2. Signing or typing words or lines
3. Picture exchange communication
4. Sound speech
5. Facial and lip exercises for articulation
6. Singing

Our Allenwood-based and licensed speech pathologists will discuss these techniques with you before they are given to the patient so that you understand how they will work. We will also reach out to your child’s pediatrician to design the speech therapy to match any other treatments they are getting and provide a more understandable explanation.
