AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder often have challenges connecting and communicating with those around them. Auckland Speech Therapy is passionate about empowering families and educators to understand Autism and strategies that can be implemented to support a child’s communication strengths and development. Fundamental to our approach is supporting the development of connection, engagement and reciprocal relationships through play and interaction.
