Our 8 year old daughter is non verbal, slowly getting to her first 100 or so words.
What we have noticed is that she incorrectly sequences the letters in a word.
Snow = NowS
Swing = WingS
It seems strongest with the letter S yet we have heard it with other word/letter combinations.
Has anyone had a similar situation? We are unable to understand ( with help of SLP) what is going on. Any previous experiences might just send us in the right direction...
My son is 4 and minimally verbal. Any language he has is not very functional and often sounds much like baby babbling. We started using Gemiini video program with him and his vocabulary is slowly increasing. The videos use discrete modeling and repetition of words to teach vocabulary and skills. It seems that by the way he pays attention to the mouth movements and the way he sometimes focuses when… read more
My 2 1/2 year old has moderate-severe autism and is non verbal. A lot of the times he will pinch his arms (sometimes occasionally biting them as well). Recently, he has started head banging a lot and will repeatedly hit his head on the hard wood floor over and over again or other objects. His ABA therapists and OT say to block It with my hand but I feel like that isn’t effective in dealing with it long term and there are times when I’m not close enough to… read more
My son is 9 and Ive waited to sign him up for swimming lessons because of his willingness to cooperate and follow directions. I would like to have him take lessons this summer to keep him busy and because it is something he enjoys! Any suggestions for classes for an older child with Autism?!
My son just turned 15. For the past couple of years he has had this obsession of throwing technology.
He use to love to pay with his tablet, computer, Wii, DS, etc. Now he won't even touch a TV remote.
He gets irritated at the smallest glitch, such as slow speed, hitting a wrong button, etc. He feels like if this happens he has no choice but to throw the item.
He's been through therapy and tried hypnosis, but nothing has helped. I want him to be able to use technology for fun and… read more
If anyone has used this, I would be interested in knowing if it helped your child.
My 14 year old son is non verbal and has severe autism. He had his first visible epileptic stroke a few days back.
1. We would like to do an EEG - however he would not allow anybody to put the sensors on his head. We could try it at night when he is calmer, however I have been unable to find any offices that would do an EEG at night. Does anybody know of a facility that would do an EEG at night around Long Island area?

I have 14 yr old twin sons that have been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome since age 3. They have been mainstreaming with an aide and resource room for the past 3 years and doing just ok. Before that they were in an autism program that also had them mainstreaming with an aide, where they thrived. The school district cut the program due to "budgetary constraints" The local high school in Michigan has stated that unless our boys can mainstream totally with no resources or… read more
