Prelinguistic capabilities

Early intervention therapy is frequently provided to autistic children. Pre-language abilities, such as eye contact, gestures, and other vocalizations that help youngsters communicate, can be developed with the assistance of SLPs.

Speaking without words

Many children with autism have trouble interpreting tiny social signs in body language. They can detect these bodily signs with the use of SLPs.
In order to improve their communication, they can also look into augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), which uses things like gestures, image cards, and technological gadgets.
SLPs receive training and practice using AAC systems with kids who have autism. A research from 2021 claims that AAC systems aid in and improve communication.
Another technique SLPs use to encourage communication in autistic children is the image exchange communication system (PECS), which is a similar system.
Using PECS encouraged autistic youngsters to make requests, according to an assessment from 2020.
