How Our Brecksville Speech Therapy Helps Children With Autism

When your child is diagnosed with autism, Brecksville speech therapy can make a huge difference in their ability to communicate, understand what’s being communicated with them and more fully participate in the world around them.

Speech-language pathologists are professionals who specialize in treating both speech disorders and language problems. They play an integral role in autism treatment, assisting with early detection (some are even trained to conduct the ADOS test) and teaching children the speech, language and social skills they’ll need to succeed. We can even help in the referral process for other specialists.

Speech therapy for children with autism can last several years or longer. Over the course of treatment, our therapists work closely with the family and sometimes the school and other professionals. (One benefit of choosing Therapy & Wellness Connection is that we also provide occupational therapy and ABA therapy, which are often also recommended for children on the autism spectrum. We also provide numerous educational programs, including tutoring and homeschooling, and social emotional learning groups.)
