My son is 7 and autistic.

First, he may never speak in a typical manner, but he will find a way to communicate.

Next, I would make sure he’s receiving speech and OT services. They have done fantastic things for our son. I would also encourage you to find an SLP and an OT that work collaboratively, it’s made a huge difference for DS.

I would also give him the language he needs constantly.

“You might be thinking....”
“You might be feeling...”
“DGS can say.....”

We ask kids hundreds of questions a day. Comment more, question less.

If I can answer more questions, let me know. I’m not a SPED teacher, but I’m a teacher and a parent of an autistic child. His former school offered a class on autism that taught me so much about how his brain works and how to best reach him.

ETA: I just checked your profile and you’re in my state, definitely PM me!

Good luck!

H0kie has great advice.

I donít know if this is helpful at all. Before my son could talk, we taught him baby signs. I think thatís what it was called. It was amazing to have him communicating with us. It was really simple one word signs but Iím wondering if you could try some sign language.

Wishing you luck!

Hi...One of my favorite students has autism. I've worked with him since he was 6. He loves visuals. One very successful app I used at the beginning was Word World. It labels objects, spells them and has the objects doing cute actions.

This student really does well with repetition, a visual that is referred to and LOTS of excited praise and over the top happiness when he is successful with s/l tasks.

Best of luck...I find joy when working with students who have autism because they are so darn unique!
