Communication and ASD (VCU-ACE Autism Center for Education)


Communication is an essential part of everyday life and is considered to be a profound and indisputable individual right. Impairment in communication is one of the diagnostic characteristics of ASD. This means that every student identified with an ASD will experience communication difficulties. It is now widely regarded that communication is an essential life skill and should be a primary goal for students with ASD.
