Autism Spectrum Disorder

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder often have challenges connecting and communicating 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 with children with Autism through play and interaction.

How we can help:

Speech therapists at Auckland Speech Therapy are experienced in a variety of approaches and can provide support in different ways including:

  • 1:1 sessions with children and their family

  • supporting educators in early childhood setting or schools to implement appropriate strategies

  • planning and supporting transition to school (early childhood, primary or secondary)

  • providing families and educators with support for challenging behaviour

  • assessing communication needs and developing a communication profile


All forms of support can be invidualised to your need and can include combinations of assessment, consultation, modelling, training, providing  programmes and resources, collaborating with other services and specialists involved with the child so please contact us to discuss
