Osteopathy and Voice: Verbal stimuli to be able to communicate with patients with autism

Autism on a communicative level is characterized by a combination of social interaction and communication deficits accompanied by stereotyped and / or repetitive obsessions and behaviors.

However, it is a continuum disorder that goes from serious aspects to highly functional aspects, with even normal verbal ability.

In many cases autistic patients have fluent speech but the pragmatic-semantic use and understanding of language in the social context are compromised. Patients with autism, for example, have shown difficulty in understanding their turn to speak in a speech, in considering the perspective of another person and in responding adequately to what is said by third parties.
