I was just curious, for those of you with verbal ASD children, when did they begin to talk?
DS is 2 (not yet dx), and says "mama, dada, & go." I watch him struggle SO hard to get a word out. I have been working with him and yesterday he managed to say "bubble!" :)
Dev. Ped. says he may never talk, but in my heart I don't think that to be the case.
He is in speech therapy once per week. I don't see her doing anything I don't do with him on a daily basis.
Right now it's a "wait and see" game of the worst kind ;( But I let him know everyday that Mommy loves him no matter what!!
