When discussing outcomes for children with autism, family’s first priority if often increasing communication. Autism presents symptoms related to unusual language development and processing. As a result, children with autism often are delayed in developing spoken language.
During the session the child will learn to play, use words/sentences to gain access to preferred items/activities, follow one/two step directions, answer WH questions, sequence, and use appropriate social skills. Children are assessed to determine their long and short-term goals. A child’s individual needs, strengths and weaknesses are all taken into account when creating functional and obtainable goals.
The benefit of having Speech and Language services provided at our center is to ensure the progress and generalization overall. Carryover is a big part of improvement and growth in speech and language skills. The ABA therapists are constantly trained, updated and informed about the progress and goals set for the children they work with to meet the needs of each specific child.
