For many children with autism, communication issues are one of the first telltale signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As autism covers a spectrum of challenges, children can present communication issues differently from one another. Some children might have a large vocabulary and learn to read at a young age but struggle to contextualize what they have read or answer who, what, where, when, why, and how questions.

Other children may be able to carry conversations but have trouble understanding non-verbal aspects of communication such as gestures, facial expressions, and body language. And then some children with autism may be entirely non-verbal.
