It’s About Autism addresses the communication needs of its clients by providing Speech Therapy (ST). Speech Language Pathologists provide speech and language therapy with the aim of improving all areas of communication for an individual with ASD. Speech Therapy sessions are tailored to each individual client’s specific needs, and are designed to engage and appropriately challenge our clients based on their unique abilities and circumstances.
Speech Therapy sessions may cover the following areas: comprehension, expression, sound production, and social use of language. Additionally, therapy may also involve the teaching of sign language, or the incorporation of the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), which utilizes picture symbols as a mode of communication.
The Preschool and School Age teams are comprised of highly trained and experienced professionals including Speech and Language Pathologists, Behaviour / Communication (B/C) Consultants, Occupational Therapists, a Behaviour Psychologist, Social Workers and a Developmental Paediatrician.
