Developing Language Skills
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) need to develop skills in their sensory system (sight, touch, taste and hearing). They require particular support with their auditory (hearing) sensory skills. Children with autism often have difficulty perceiving the differences in sounds (an auditory processing disorder), and this is a core component of their attention, memory and language difficulties.
They can be an integral part of intervention and development for children with Autism, as they develop the auditory processing skills that are a core component of language difficulties. This can improve their verbal and non-verbal communication, social interaction and creative play.
Would you like to improve your child’s:
- Oral language skills
