Autism is a condition that can affect the way an individual perceives and interacts with the world around them. Behavior disorders such as autism can often impact language and speech in varying ways. Autism can affect a child’s ability to express his thoughts and feelings in a social setting. Children with autism spectrum disorders may have difficulty speaking with others or have trouble clearly describing their thoughts, intentions, and emotions. Autism can also affect physical speech, causing difficulty mimicking or making the proper sounds associated with words and language.
Although autism spectrum disorders can affect language, expression, and speech, the right tools and assistance can help children with autism learn to successfully and openly communicate with others. At The Behavior Exchange, we offer communication training using ABA therapy as part of our services. We invite you to learn more about autism symptoms and what to do if you believe your child has autism on our website, or reach out to us by phone at (888) 716-8084 to speak with a board-certified behavior analyst .
