The Month of April is National Autism Awareness Month!

April is Autism Awareness Month in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 1 in 68 children in the U.S. has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Speech-language pathologists play a critical role in screening, diagnosing, and enhancing the social communication development and quality of life of children, adolescents, and adults with ASD. Impairments in verbal and nonverbal communication are core features of ASD. All individuals with ASD are challenged in the area of social communication. Thus, many individuals with ASD need help in learning to use language or alternative communication systems, and all have needs in acquiring appropriate social use of communication. These challenges result in far reaching problems for individuals with ASD and everyone with whom they interact.
In many ways, ASD is primarily a social communication disability. Therefore, the speech-language pathologist's role is critical in supporting the individual, the environment, and the communication partner to maximize opportunities for interaction in order to overcome barriers created by the nature of ASD. At West Tennessee Hearing & Speech Center, we believe that with proper treatment, most people with communication and hearing disorders can lead full and productive lives.
