Autism and AugCom

Communication is one of the primary deficits of children with autism. It is difficult to remediate because it is a language disorder more than a language delay. When we speak, words fly out of our mouths and disappear. The child with autism has a difficult time holding on to the words. By using non-linguistic representations (pictures) paired with our verbal words, the child now has something to visually hold.
