In order to raise awareness about autism, April has been designated as Autism Awareness Month. Now in its ninth year, the campaign will kick off on Sunday the 2nd of April, the official Autism Awareness Day. Thanks to campaigns such as these, the general public are now much more informed about what autism is, but many still struggle to understand how to approach communicating with an autistic person. This blog will lay out some of the top tips for communicating with autistic children.

Speech therapy may not be the first thing people think of when they hear about autism, but it is an extremely beneficial treatment for autistic children. Other than the obvious benefits of improved communication, speech therapy can help autistic children better interact with others, build relationships, and integrate into society.
