New WA research gives non-verbal people with autism a voice in bid to boost communication - ABC News


For some people with autism, speech is no more detectible than background noise, like the sound of a passing train.

Key points:

  • Around half of Australians living with autism have trouble communicating

  • They often use augmented and alternative communication devices

  • New research is aiming to educate supporters in the use of the devices

Communicating with people who are non-verbal or minimally verbal can be very difficult, but new research being conducted at Murdoch University's Cognition in Autism lab is reshaping the communications space.
