hi Lakshmi Karthik! I understand your concerns. u r doing a great job Lakshmi! what is his current vocab size? Lakshmi earlier the intervention the better it is. it's advisable to consult a SLP or a speech therapist at the earliest . keep talking to him through gestures .. you could also use music and rhymes to teach him words . the more u would talk to him the better it gets. spell out each and every action you do and emphasize it " we just brushed our teeth and now we will have Milk ". so point towards teeth and the brushing action and milk. repitition , praise and rewards are likely to help a lot. Lakshmi don't give up , I am sure soon there would be a stage when he would become a motormouth with your persistent efforts and love. hope this helps!

hi Lakshmi Karthik! sorry for the late reply. Lakshmi each child with autism is unique and there are no fixed methods that can help one and all. still u can try some basic things which I mentioned earlier also. use gestures for communicating, immediately respond to his gestures so that he understands and can correlate . similarly whatever he is doing give words to it. for instance if he picks up a toy car, u could say ,'car 'and repeat it once or twice in a sentence . 'can I take this car?' 'do u enjoy car ride with Papa?' so let him correlate things with real life and praise him when he does respond. also try showing pics of the same on internet or in a video and try repeating the same word over and over again in your conversation. use simple language which he can understand. Lakshmi it would take lot of patience and perseverance from your end but I am sure he would definitely show positive response. hope this helps!
