Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) develop at a different rate and don’t necessarily develop skills in the same order as typically developing children. Autism in children often results in delays in their physical development. It affects the lower brain which is responsible for the child’s balance and co-ordination. Children with autism spectrum disorder, communication development happens differently and more slowly. Children with ASD often are unable to use gestures - such as pointing to an object - to give meaning to their speech. Often, children with ASD, who can speak will say things that have no meaning or that seem out of context in conversations with others.
