    Speech pathology

    Speech Pathologists assess and treat individuals who have difficulties with communication. Our Speech Pathologists work with individuals, parents and other support persons to design a program that best meets the communication needs of the individual on the autism spectrum. Supports are designed to develop the individual’s language, play, and social communication skills. This may involve developing joint and shared attention, teaching communication intent, teaching the individual ways to communicate through the use of augmentative and alternative communication strategies such as photographs, pictures and signs, developing the individual’s listening skills and comprehension, turn-taking, conversation skills, and the use and understanding of facial expression and body language.

    The Speech Pathologist provides information, guidance and resources to assist carers and others to foster and promote the development of communication skills and to help the individual’s understanding of language and the world around them.

    Key areas of support

    • Teaching functional receptive and expressive communication skills
    • Supporting and implementing communication strategies, including verbal speech and augmentative and alternative communication, to promote expressive and receptive communication
    • Teaching strategies that promote play and positive social relationships
