Variations in Language Skills in Children and Teens With ASD

While social communication deficits are prominent in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), both spoken and written language are also often affected. These language difficulties can be marked or subtle and can affect academic and social success. This journal self-study explores the ways that language deficits may present in higher-functioning children and teens with ASD and how the presence of autism may lead to differences in gesture use, making inferences from text, vocabulary, storytelling, and conversational skills. Clinicians working with children and adolescents with ASD can use this research to better identify variations in these skills and plan interventions to address the differences that impact school and interpersonal performance.
