Autism is a developmental disorder that effects each child differently. A child with ASD may have mild, moderate or severe delays or difficulties with any of the following:
verbal communication / expressive language
echolalia (repeating spoken information out of context)
speech clarity / articulation
social communication / eye contact / joint attention
functional play skills / turn taking
theory of mind / perspective taking
attending to and processing spoken information
sensory sensitivity (tactile, visual, auditory)
fine motor skills
self help and personal care skills
gross motor skills
literacy - reading & spelling
cognitive / intellectual functioning
Parents with concerns in above areas are encouraged to consult with their family physician or child pediatrician and pursue a referral to a developmental specialist or pediatric neurologist for further investigation; as well as seek the advice of Speech-Language Pathologist. Early intervention with a Speech-Language Pathologist and Behaviour Interventionist can help a child that is facing challenges with appropriate social skills, language comprehension and using language appropriately to interact with others.
Nexus Therapy Associates understand the complex and individual needs of children and families effected by Austim Spectrum Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome and work with families, professionals and other team members in the child's best interest. As therapists our primary objective is to support the development of skills that are most functional, meaningful and relevant to the child or individual in the context of their daily lives.
Some children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome struggle academically with reading and spelling, in spite of having average or above average intelligence. Speech Therapists of Vancouver have evidence based literacy programs in place to help children, teens and adults with learning difficulties related to ASD become successful at reading and spelling. With the proper support in place, many children and individuals with ASD have the potential to lead happy, fulfilling and successful lives.
