Children with Asperger’s and other autism spectrum disorders (ASD’s) often have difficulties producing the appropriate voice volume in different settings. Some children on the autism spectrum speak too quietly. Others speak too loudly. Still others do not compensate adequately for the social milieu or ambient noise level.
Understanding abstract concepts, such as the volume of one’s voice, can be difficult for
children with ASD’s. It is well understood that adding a visual component to the otherwise abstract concept can often be very helpful for individuals with ASD.
