What are the Benefits of Speech Therapy for Autism
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:
- Repetitive Behavior such as repetitively stacking or lining up objects
- 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:
- Not talk at all
- Make harsh sounds or utter grunts
- Frequently repeat what another person says
- Speak without an expressive tone of voice
- Struggle to create creative words
- 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
- Parents can start seeing results as soon as after the first week.
- The child starts to understand they are not “wrong”: they are perfectly “okay”, even “special”.
- The child will start better interaction with other children of the same age and will start to develop new friends.
- 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.

That’s really neat that some results in speech can be seen in as little as one week. I’ve heard, too, that speech therapy can benefit the emotional well-being of the child because they’ll feel more confident and happy. I’ll have to keep this great information in mind and share it with a friend of mine who has a son who could benefit from speech therapy.
I like how you mentioned that autism can cause problems with speech and communication and that therapy can help with that. My son has autism, and it’s sometimes hard for him to express himself and speak properly. I want him to be able to communicate effectively with those he interacts with, so maybe it would be a good idea to take him to speech therapy so he can learn that lifelong skill.
Spoot on with this write-up,I absolutely think
this site nneeds a lot more attention. I’ll probably bee back again to
read more, thanks ffor the info!
Mу brother suggested I might like this web site. Ηe was entirely right.
Thiѕ рost truly made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I
haԁ spent for thіs informatiоn! Thanks!
I know a few young kids with special needs that struggle with talking, but I never realize that speech therapy could help with some of it. I agree with you that a person with autism will have to spend more time and effort than the average person would. I think taking the time to focus on body language, tone, and facial expressions are a great way to prepare them for adulthood. Thanks for sharing!
Mylena was fantastic, she helped my girl and I can’t still believe how she progressed in just one hour of therapy. For sure it was really expensive and not covered by my insurance, but I was referred by some friends and I trusted them.
Thank you for the free tips. I will dig the matter
