What causes the need for speech therapy?

Sound is normally processed by both sides of the brain, giving the brain more chance to digest the information – the music. Some experts believe that children with autism have right-brained, or Gestalt learning styles, especially kinesthetic learners who benefit from movement, which music therapy promotes.

Speech therapy for autism may include three techniques: play, teaching, modeling, and prompting.

Language Therapy
Language intervention promotes youngsters to speak and learn new words. This approach is used by youngsters through play, role-playing, and storytelling.

OT Oral Motor
That’s why it’s called mouth treatment ORMT may utilize massage, sound and facial form attention, and novel textures. It’s especially effective when children’s speaking issues stem from physical issues rather than lack of competence.

Music, videos and audio recordings are used in articulation therapy. The therapist can show the youngster suitable tongue and mouth postures and sounds to emulate.
