Speech Development in Autism

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may have a more difficult time learning and using language. Children with autism may also need extra support with communication and social skills.

If your child is experiencing setbacks in speech development, seek treatment as early as possible. The most important is speech therapy. Please discuss this with your Medical Doctor.

Naturopathic treatments can be implemented to support the body and correct any nutritional deficiencies to improve overall health. A state of overall improved health is important when starting any new intervention. Our naturopathic doctor, Dr. Tasreen Alibhai, ND, can customize a treatment for your child based on his or her lab test results and individual assessments.
