Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

A child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) showcases difficulty in social communication and interaction along with restricted and repetitive behaviors and interests in activities.
Children with ASD are provided with an intervention, based on the severity of their disorder.
Intensive and early intervention can make a considerable difference in their lives and may include:

  • Enhancing social communication
  • Improving language and related cognitive skills
  • Developing behavioral and emotional skills
  •  Impairment in joint attention
  •  Impairment of social-emotional reciprocity
  •  Impairment of initiation and response to conversations
  •  Difficulty in developing, maintaining, and understanding relationships
  •  Difficulty maintaining eye contact
  •  Difficulty expressing and understanding body language
  •  Repetitive speech (stuttering or lack of communication skills)
  •  Repetitive motor movement (hand flapping, biting, and pulling)
  •  Inflexible adherence to routines
  •  Limited interests
  •  Sensitivity to sensory inputs (touch, smell, light and noise)

Additionally, these symptoms may be observed:
 Emotional outbursts (crying, angriness or laughing at inappropriate times)

  1.  Anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal
  2.  Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities
  3.  Problems with self-management.

The TalkAbility Program is designed to help parents develop the theory of mind in daily life activities. A child with high-functioning autism has special strengths and abilities: language is well developed but difficulties in conversations and interactions are observed. The TalkAbility Program helps children understand the perspective of others, adapt language accordingly and improve their social skills.

The More Than Words Program was designed specifically for parents of children aged 5 and under, on the autistic spectrum or with other social communication difficulties. Addressing the unique needs of these children, the program provides parents with the tools, strategies and support they need to help their children reach their full communication potential. An online program is also available through tele-practice.
