Communication and Interaction

Communication and Interaction:


Communication and Interaction can encompass a lot of needs and issues that a child may have, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (Also known as ASC - Autistic Spectrum Condition) . Some communication and interaction issues that can present themselves in Autistic children include:

  • Difficulties understanding and using verbal and non-verbal communication.
  • Understanding social behaviours and expectations, which can impact on a child's ability to interact with other children and adults around them.
  • A reliance on structure and routine in their life.


As well as ASD, Communication and Interaction can also include Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).

Children and young people can experience a range of difficulties that are linked with speech and language.

Speech, Language and Communication Needs can present themselves in a variety of ways, including:

  • The production of speech.
  • Struggling with finding the right word, or not being able to join words together in a meaningful way.
  • Problems communicating through speech, for example difficulties finding the correct language to express thoughts and ideas that they are having.
  • Difficulties and delays in understanding or responding to verbal cues from others.
  • Understanding and using language in specific social situations.
