What are the Benefits of Speech Therapy for Autism

autism-stacking-cans_2nd_edit

What is Autism?

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that may impair communication as well as social and cognitive skills. It is also known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and a person with ASD may have the following traits:

  1. Repetitive Behavior such as repetitively stacking or lining up objects
  2. Less Social Understanding due to less eye contact and turn-taking, and unable to express themselves using movements

The biggest problems that might happen to a person with ASD are speech and communication problems. It can deeply affect their communication in many ways.

A person with autism may: 

  1. Not talk at all
  2. Make harsh sounds or utter grunts
  3. Frequently repeat what another person says
  4. Babbling
  5. Speak without an expressive tone of voice
  6. Struggle to create creative words
  7. Understand little of meaning of symbols

Because of these difficulties, a person with autism must spend more time and effort to learn how to speak than an average person would. Not only is there is a need to improve on their voice, but also body language, tone, and facial expressions. This is when a speech therapist like Mylena of Inborn Voice comes in to improve communication and enhance the quality of life of a person with autism.

Inborn Voice is different from traditional speech therapy techniques that are currently used worldwide:

  1. We take great care of not letting the child understand he/she is “wrong”. So we work with clients, especially the youngest one, in their home.
  2. We start evaluating their situation as an external observer and if we find the Inborn Voice Method is helpful, we will address and educate the parents first. They will be interacting with their child much longer than our session does and so the results will be much faster.
  3. We evaluate the progress from time to time, leaving the great training effort to the parent until the child is ready to start the journey through the Inborn Voice Method.

Some of the Benefits of the Inborn Voice method versus the traditional Speech Therapy:

  1. Parents can start seeing results as soon as after the first week.
  2. The child starts to understand they are not “wrong”: they are perfectly “okay”, even “special”.
  3. The child will start better interaction with other children of the same age and will start to develop new friends.
  4. Will start to develop better temporal and spatial awareness.

Research in Europe has shown that Inborn Voice can be an effective way to address those affected by autism and to let them improve their communications skills.

Contact Mylena of Inborn Voice to learn how we can help your child with autism improve their communication skills by using the Inborn Method. We serve the Greater Boston area and more via the personal private lessons at your home. We will visit the child in your home, and then we will start training the parents in our office inside the Cummings Center of Beverly or online. Call us or fill out a contact form for more information.

How to Avoid Ums, Like, and You Know

Carolyn Kennedy

Caroline Kennedy

Do you often speak in a style that often had the words like, you know and weird pauses of um? Try counting the number of those words when you make a speech. You would be surprised by the way you speak can hold you back in your career. It distracts people to truly hear your message and ideas. Due to the habit of ending sentences with an upward inflection, it displays a lack of confidence to your audience. There is also a possibility that your clients may cancel a job due to your speaking style.

Remember the failed Senate bid of Carolyn Kennedy in 2008? Kennedy seemed unable to attract the audience and articulate her ideas without saying you know”.  As you rise up the corporate ladder, the bigger the spotlight and expectation.

In order to change your speaking style to sound more professional, here are some easy steps:

  1. Take a video of yourself. Make sure you are aware of the ums, likes, and you knows. A co-worker or a higher level professional can give you advice on how to improve.
  2. Study the speaking styles of politicians or business leaders. Today, there are many top-notch leaders that you can study from. Take a look at the speeches of Barack Obama, Howard Schultz, Indra Nooyi, and the higher-ups at your company. Make a note on how they pace their speech and when to pause. Notice how they deliver their ideas to attract the crowd in front of them.
  3. Join Inborn Voice. Voice & speech lessons are offered to anyone who would like to improve their speech effectiveness for interviews and public speech in the areas of Beverly, Salem, Peabody, Danvers, and internationally through online classes.

In the end, it’s not about copying someone else’s speech style, but to take the elements that make them successful. It’s still about delivering your own unique ideas and using those elements to attract the crowd.

Contact Inborn Voice now to become truly professional at interviews and public speeches.

 

Why President Barack Obama is One of the Greatest Speakers in the World?

Barack Obama

Ever since Barack Obama came on to the public spotlight when he ran for the Presidency of the United States, people are often amazed by his public speaking abilities. He may not write all the speeches he addressed during his political career, however, he has certainly delivered his ideas across people’s minds effectively. With that ability, it helped him to win the majority of the popular vote twice. He was the first Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to do so.

Here are three things that made Barack Obama a great speaker and how you can learn to be just as effective:

  1. Contrast a problem and a solution. He makes people trust him by making contrasts on a problem and solution. These contrasts usually move the audience deeply and quickly. For example, “You hit singles, you hit doubles; every once in a while we may be able to hit a home run.”
  2. Repetition. It is no longer a surprise that politicians like Barack Obama love to use repetitions because they can make your messages and ideas more memorable. In fact, he loves to use a rhetorical technique called anaphora, repetition of a phrase at the beginning of several sentences. ““You’ll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer…You’ll hear the pride in the voice of a volunteer…You’ll hear the deep patriotism in the voice of a military spouse…”
  3. Pace and volume. Many excellent public speakers pace and control their volume of their speech very effectively. Sometimes, he slows it down, lower the volume to expect reactions from the crowd. He can also speak at a high volume and speak faster to let people know the importance of his sentences.

If you can mastermind these three tips along with the assistance of a public speaking and speech coach at Inborn Voice, it won’t be long before you can deliver your speech and grasp the attention of your audience effectively.

Inborn Voice serves the residents of Beverly, Salem, Danvers, Peabody in the Beverly Cummings Center and internationally via online lessons.
