my son been diagnosed with temperal lob seizers other wise known as a form of epilepsy. My problem with him right know is he likes to hit & throw things. I tell him no, slap his hand,& even sit him down but he gets up. His communication skills are not good either when he wants something he always points at things & it's hard to tell what he wants, he'll just keep on going untill he gets what it was he wanted. He has been asest for adhd & is taking meds for that as well as meds to help him with his seizers. But the adhd meds are not working the dr. won't change him untill he is a bit older. What i need help with is trying to figure out a way to help him communicate better with the family so we know what it is he wants, or needs. As well as a way to help the family deal with & understand what it is he has & what we need to do as a family to get through it all. we just need moral surport in this to help get us through it all.Answer Question

More information on the PECS system:
Both of my children have mild autism, and until they learned to talk the PECS system was teh MOST helpful tool--they were able to communicate, and it GREATLY reduced the frustration in trying to understand them.
