Narrative

The Autism Language Program (ALP) at Boston Children's Hospital is a program specifically designed to help children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder communicate and learn more effectively. We consider all forms of communication including spoken, written, gestural (sign) and visual (use of graphic symbols).

Children who visit this program are evaluated and ultimately, their families are given a communication plan with recommendations that are tailored to the child's interests and needs, and usually include suggestions for both school and home.
