As someone who works in the school system directly with the SLP, it is almost assuredly for the pragmatics.

Same thing here. Aidan has had speech therapy since preschool. His biggest reason for still having it now is the pragmatics.

Aha! that might actually be helpful! thanks! Would be great to have someone other than ME doing that! Although a therapist would have to have the patience of a saint to work with Euan and get through all the arguments about WHY the rules are the way they are (he is learning French at the moment, a language, it seems, specifically DESIGNED to annoy Aspies with its 100 rules and 1000 exceptions-to-the-rule. Why oh WHY can they not learn German, or even better, Latin?? :-)

My guess would be pragmatics/social language like Jessie said.

Pragmatic Language is something they work with and almost always COMMON in ASD children.

Kirsty,



When the school recommended SLP services for Liam when he was 5yo I had the same reaction as you.

What about pragmatic language? The ability to use language appropriately in a social setting? Knowing how to respond to people, not blurt out random things that do not pertain to the topic, maintaining a non-preferred topic and not going back to preferred topic, reciprocity, not talking at people, but instead talking to people. That sort of thing? Maybe?

My son has had speech and language therapy for over 3 years now. He struggles with an array for issues though, not just language. Although the older he gets the more obvious it is that his language is far behind other children. He talks, but it's mostly about his obsession...and he has poor reciprocity.

Just a thought....
