"Teaching communication skills to children on the autism spectrum can sometimes be a daunting and time consuming task. Much depends on the cognitive ability and the degree of severity of the deficit in the child. Because of the impairments it is often necessary to teach fundamental skills, as well as the reasons for interaction with others. The intuitive skills that are normally inherent within individuals in the non-autistic population are not necessarily present in those with autism spectrum disorder, for example, conversation is based on turn taking and often this basic skill needs to be taught first." - INTRODUCTION
