I guess I'm looking for stories to give me hope. Did your non-verbal toddler ever catch up to their peers as far as speech goes?
okay, so my son is going to ABA therapy; but only on mon, wed and fridays for two hours. i feel that it is not enough hours of therapy for him. but who knows if it really does get him overwhelmed. i feel that i need to place him in other types of therapy. i want speech therapy, and they have told me about behavior therapy but it has been a month or two and have not called us about it. is there programs or therapys we have to seek on our own as parents or do they just give us what… read more
