How To Persuasive Speech On Autism
My daughter has autism she is 7 she is very repetitive with her speech and behaviour is there any medications that could help this thanks?
No medication: Although doctors have tried medications thinking these could be related to OCD, there hasn't been much success. The language is due to problems developing original speech, so she relies on phrases that somehow connected with her. The behaviors can be related to sensory needs, a means of self calming or a means of understanding their body and world. Speech and OT can help expand her skills.
ASD are a spectrum of disorders of varying degrees that are characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 68 American children as ...Read more
Why doesn't my 3-year-old son with autism answer to his name? He knows his name, hears well, and has quite a bit of speech, so he should be able to.
Common autism trait: One of the hallmarks of autism is the impaired ability to recognize or interact to social cues in the usual way. No one really knows why this happens, but is quite common in autistic children. If possible, a hearing screen can be performed to make sure hearling loss is not a contributing factor.See 1 more doctor answer
My 5 yo son diagnosed with autism still mumbles sylablles that we can't understand. Speech theraphy once a week here philpines expensive what can I do?
Special Education: Are special education services for children with autism available? These include speech/language & occupational therapy as well as behavioral therapy. Ask his slt if he has joint attention, the ability to share interest in an object or event with another person, as this precedes social communication. Whether he uses asl, pecs, language or an ipad app, insist that he tell you what he wants.See 1 more doctor answer
It's not helpful: The point of speech/language therapy for kids with ASD is not only to increase expressive language, it's to increase social communication, conversational turn-taking in real life situations with real human beings whose emotional & verbal response are neither scripted nor always expected. The only thing worse would be to allow hours of screen time or Baby Einstein videos. Speech = articulation.
Yes!: Definitely, although screening and careful exam for the two co ditions you mention are warranted. Isolated expressive speech delay, we call it. What is his ear infection history? Did he have a social smile at 6 months? Gesture and point by 15 months? These are examples of screening! What does your pediatrician think? Get answers!See 1 more doctor answer
Definitely not: There are plenty of reasons why a child might have speech delay. Autism is only 1 of them. Has the hearing been checked? Are there other delays in motor or social realms? Likely your child would benefit from a speech and language evaluation at a speech center specialized in children and potentially an ENT evaluation and other workup eg. Developmental evaluation if other delays are present.See 3 more doctor answers

Hello- my son is 3 1/2 years old. He has a signifacant speech delay and seems to tune people out. Are these signs of autism?
My son is 2.5. He says only same 7 wds. But has said many. Imitates me. Receptive language great. History speech delay w bro. No gdd. Autism r/o. Worry?
Might not be needed: The only reason I can imagine they would not work with a patient on the autism spectrum is that they may feel they do not need any help or that it may not provide any additional benefit. I would ask the therapist directly their reason for not wanting to provide services.See 2 more doctor answers
9 month boy doesn't babble consonants, only vowels and gurling sounds like "aga " should I worry of speech delay or autism? All other dev are fine
Isolated speech: If this is the only issue, you have time to monitor and enhance this delay in speech/language. Work with your pediatrician. Likely you are seeing: he understands that objects continue to exist, even when they are not seen; responds to simple commands; responds to name; understands the meaning of no; imitates speech sounds; plays pat-a-cake or peek-a-boo; waves bye. Stimulate vocab by "see ; say".See 1 more doctor answer

Is delayed speech a sign of autism, he is 16 months and has just started to make eye contact with me and comes to me to be consoled he also asperates on thin fluids and has reflux. Mum is autistic?
Provisionally yes: One in 10 children have signs of autism at a young age but by 3 the ratio is 1 in 80 for boys. The delayed eye contact is more of a concern. The aspiration of thin fluids indicates a problem with autonomic nervous system control. How is the reflux being treated.? He needs a vitamin d level assessed and complete evaluation.See 2 more doctor answers
Speech delay or autism? 3 y/o- says few words but no sentences. Knows letters n sounds, helps with clothes/shoes, etc. No mom, dad, hungry, eat, etc.
Speech delay=sure: Whether this is part of autism or a speech/language issue can only be determined by a full evaluation. If you are in the US, there is a program called Child Find operated in all public school districts. Their job is to take any kid 3 and over and identify their special needs and try to make the kid school ready by 6.Contact special services in the area you live and get started.
2.5 yr boy says 7 words. Has said 100.Rec. Lang. Is fine. History fam speech delay. Had glue ear. Autism r/o. Genetic test fine. Therapy didn't help. Worry?
Hearing?: Glue ear is generally diagnosed at surgery for tubes. Did he have tubes placed? Has he had a hearing test? I would ensure hearing is normal before focusing on the speech delay. If that is okay I would be sure to get another opinion of a pediatric speech therapist and potentially a pediatric ENT doctor. Also make sure his siblings aren't "talking for him".See 2 more doctor answers
