Hi!

My name is Tiffany and I have started this group because I have a beautiful 3 year old Son named Sam who lives with PDD-NOS (an autism spectrum disorder).  Sam has never spoken a full word or imitated any speech.  I am looking to talk with other Mom's who have pre-verbal children as well.  I have run into a lot of Mom's who have children on the spectrum that they refer to as "non-verbal" but I soon find out that many of their children may not carry on conversations, or have purposeful speech but they do indeed use some full words and or imitate words or use echolalia. Our son currently babbles sounds but does not imitate speech and has never spoken a full word.  Sam is truly considered "non-verbal"...although we prefer "Pre-verbal" because we have faith that one day his words will come!  I am searching for other Mom's that can relate to our situation but certainly do not want to exclude any Mom/Grandmother that has a child/grandchild on the spectrum verbal or not, you are all welcome!!  Insults or name calling is absolutely not allowed, if this happens you will be removed from the group immediately!   This group is meant as a place of hope, comfort & friendship.
