Improving Social Communications.

Autism is a neurological disorder that can affect speech, language development, and social communication. The limited ability to easily communicate with others can be frustrating and cause irritation for the child with autism. Speech-language therapy focuses on challenges with language and communication to improve the child’s verbal, nonverbal, and social communication.
