When my son Lucas was first diagnosed with autism, we had to overcome countless autism communication problems. One of the major ones was talking more clearly. Getting a child to speak more clearly can be a challenge for any parent or professional, and it’s not just an issue in kids with autism. Even typically developing children have articulation problems, and parents sometimes have to practice with children extensively to improve articulation. But as you can imagine, helping children with autism speak more clearly can be difficult on a whole other level.

That’s why in today’s video blog, I’m covering how to resolve articulation problems in children with autism. If you’ve been wondering how to help children articulate better, and pronounce their words more clearly, I might have the answers for you. I have a system that categorizes words into three areas, and when focusing on the right type of words, we can see major improvement in speech articulation. This video covers the three categories that are part of my articulation program and provides some insight and articulation tips for improving language in kids with autism.
