Children with autism display varied communication abilities. Some of them may be completely unable to speak, while others can properly form sentences. Autistic children may also inappropriately repeat words and phrases. A speech therapy should be a part of treatment for autism. It may include:
- strengthening the muscles in the mouth,
- modulating tone of voice,
- understanding body language,
- making clearer speech sounds,
- responding to questions.
